The farmer's friend

Posted By on Fri, Sep 7, 2007 at 5:41 AM

The Oklahoma attorney general yesterday blasted legislation being carried by Sen. Blanche Lincoln to save the poultry industry from complying with anti-pollution laws on chicken waste and thus stymie efforts by Oklahoma to clean up their waters of Arkansas chicken waste. Sen. Mark Pryor makes it clear in this Stephens Media account that he's the poultry industry's puppet on this issue, too. But I liked this:

Lincoln said in a statement that the legislation would clarify that Congress never meant for manure to be considered hazardous.

So perhaps the good senators would like to have a big plate of it for dinner tonight, or stir a dollop into their tea at lunch every day.
