ear the end of their legislative session in mid-December, Pennsylvania 
lawmakers voted in favor of a bill about crime and the motor vehicle code. But that 
bill also carried an unexpected provision: a law that would have prevented 
municipalities from having any control over local factory farms and their manure 
disposal. On New Year's Eve, Pennsylvania got a gift. Gov. Edward Rendell 
vetoed the bill, arguing that the state needed to address the question of manure 
disposal — euphemistically called "nutrient management" — in a more coherent 
manner than in a last-minute vote on a last-minute insertion into an unrelated 

full story:
"The world is a dangerous place,
not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.",
Albert Einstein
My choice for fashion: compassion ... They need it more than we do."
