  • Letter to Editor

    Dear Editor,

     

    Nearly 240 years ago, our founding fathers declared our national independence  

    from Great Britain. This 4th of July, let's declare our independence from the  

    meat industry.

     

    More than 60 percent of U.S. agricultural subsidies pay for meat, dairy, and  

    egg production. Fresh fruit and vegetable farmers receive less than one  

    percent of the total. It's time to declare our independence by stopping these  

    subsidies.
