Leave it to Pat to advocate killing the milk cow for a hamburger.

Dairy cows are indeed slaughtered, but by the time they are, they won't
be winning any prizes. I wonder if Pat pays much attention to what goes
on around where he lives. Maybe, if he got out of his car, held his nose
and talked to the dairy farmers, he might learn something.


Ummm, maybe I learned it from walking through the county fair and
looking in the meat case at the store. Remember, I'm the one who
actually lives in a rural area -- the county fair, the tribe's Pow
Wow, the Falling Leaves Festival are all part of the community. In
this area, they put the picture of the cow in the case next to the
meat and no one complains about it.


Are you sure that was a cow and not a steer? Holstein-Friesian cows, as
opposed to steers, are NOT slaughtered until they become too old to be
productive milk producers.

Okay, fine. You (and George) know everything. When a cow wins the
blue ribbon this year I'll ask then to check with you before they
decide what to do with it.

Southern Comfort my ass.
Where is Lafayette and why would I even want to remotely consider
living there?

Tu ne sais rien de ta patrie.
Where is Lafayette Canada, then?

Sorry, my bad. I was referring to Lafayette, La. I know quite a bit
about francophone Canada. I watch Téléjournal nearly every day on the
French channel TV5.


I think probably Atlanta is the only Southern city with a decent transit
system.


I found it kind of crappy. And Jesus, I hear that MARTA acronym joke way
too much down there. The whites almost seem smug about it.


Compare, for instance, to Gulfport, Mississippi ;-)
