More Peanut Problems.

Yet another peanut facility has been closed. This time the offending plant is in Plainview, Texas. It was owned by the Peanut Corporation Of America. It is believed that after their plant in Georgia was shut down some of those peanuts were shipped to Texas. Apparently this plant in Texas must have been using a cloaking device from Star Trek. They had been in business for 4 years and were not licensed and had never been inspected. Surely there are health inspectors for other places in Plainview. Either money changed hands or these inspectors had worse eyesight than a baseball umpire. The CEO's appearance before Congress placed him in the Rod Blagojevich arrogance category. He just can't seem to understand why people are picking on him. After all, only 8 people have died and 500 are sick. Why, compared to the population of the United States that is only a drop in the bucket. Another clueless individual. More of those seem to pop-up every day.

Travis was right about yesterday's question. The answer of course was Gettysburg.

Today's question is Grade 3/World History. What new form of government was created by the Romans? A) Republic B) Monarchy C) Feudalism
I knew this one. 28-9.

I know different companies, BUT all of these corporations are asking us to bail them out with taxpayer money on one hand, and then don't seem to concerned when they are killing us on the the other. Let 'em all die on the vine I say.

Answer: A. Republic

Stewart Parnell (head of the now-bankrupt Peanut Corp. of America) is, indeed, the scum of the earth. But the scum was nurtured in the fertile, negligent soil of the USDA and the FDA.

Will the last person to actually use their cerebrum in Washington DC please turn out the lights?
