Good News

It's nice to see that all the ranting and raving that I and so many other people have been doing over the years is starting to have concrete results. The New York Times reports that:

WEST MANSFIELD, Ohio — Concessions by farmers in this state to sharply restrict the close confinement of hens, hogs and veal calves are the latest sign that so-called factory farming — a staple of modern agriculture that is seen by critics as inhumane and a threat to the environment and health — is on the verge of significant change.

It's a good article worth the read. By no means is the battle over to end the heinously inhuman and environmentally catastrophic practice of "factory farming" of animals, but it is good to see that slowly, much needed change is starting to happen.
