    One of the "cowboys" almost got arrested. Testosterone overload, I think. Embarrassing. I'll find out who it was...I have connections. :) That will be tough to live down.

    Apparently they cannot be used for food because they were farm animals dispatched "in the wild". Insane.

    I haven't tried it yet but my good friend always freezes the leaves whole. Drying them is hard without really good dehydrating equipment because they are fragile and tend to be "wet" as herbs go. ...

    Possibly. This is just one of many articles on food waste, so I don't believe the only measure of food waste has been by going through a couple of trash bags.

    Yes, and oddly, Americans are more offended by docked tails on dogs, which, in comparison to declawing is virtually painless.

    I agree. Not to mention, what the lesson student did was probably far more effective than trying to intervene.
