Jonathan Safran on Ellen Degeneres - Eating Animals (Video)

Examples of our farms in America

On November 4, 2009 Jonathan Safran appeared on the Ellen Degeneres show about his newest novel, Eating Animals.

Safran spoke about some things he points out about risks American's have when eating meat. One topic that piqued me interest was regarding the swine flu. He said that with much research it has been found that the Swine Flu originated from a farm in the US and not in Mexico - First American Pig Confirmed with H1N1

Safran spoke of how our idealistic animal farms are not what we picture.  As you can see from the photo's I have posted, this is what an actual farm in America looks like.  So can you honestly say eatting Animals that are living in cramped pens, defecating on one another and eating it is healthy?  We have water sources shut down when e-coli is found in the water.  E-coli is caused when human or animal feces is mixed in.  How can this be any healthier?

Couple arrested for steeling 1,000 bags of luggage from airport

Wilson King, 61 and Stacy Lynne Legg-King, 38 were arrested on Monday after police found 1,000 pieces of luggage in their suburban residence.

"A piece of luggage here, a piece of luggage there, I would imagine gets stolen out of airports all the time," Phoenix police Detective James Holmes said Tuesday. "This is a livelihood. There's a lot of luggage and there's a lot of victims."

Legg-King also was arrested on suspicion of tampering with evidence. It was not immediately clear how the two are related.  Police noticed King getting out of his car and taking a piece of luggage than getting back in.  He was than followed to his home where police discovered their home in complete disarray from the 1,000 bags of luggage they had stolen from the airport over time.

One neighbor had told FoxNews that the Kings had yard sales all the time, and even bought a few bags of luggage himself at one time.
