Never thought I would write this, but...

... good for Burger King. They're committing to buying a higher-percentage of humanely-raised eggs and pork. We'll only see changes in these industries when there is economic pressure, and in the US, economic pressure can only come from fast-food giants. I may just declare a temporary lifting of our family's fast-food ban to buy some humanely-raised onion rings from the BK Lounge.

have you read "the omnivore's dilemma," by michael pollan? very very well-written and enough to throw your whole concept of food in a tailspin. BK's move is a good one though. no doubting that.

I haven't read it, but have always meant to. Thanks, you just inspired me to put it on hold at the library...
