Imagine telling cowboys of yesterday that red meat is potentially deadly and that the methane gas released from their herd will lead to earthly ruination. As unbelievable as that may have been a century ago, that's where we're at today. We hear groups loudly proclaiming that eating red meat will shorten our lives.

These arguments seem to arise more than ever. A conglomeration of farmers wants to start a dairy operation in a rural county, but is met with strong opposition by neighbors concerned about noise and odor.
Two pit bulls were killed last month in Montevideo, Minn., after they attacked students and staff near that city's middle school. It's another incident involving this dangerous dog breed, and one that resulted in injuries. It could have been much worse. It's hard to deny the breed can be dangerous and unpredictable. Certainly, there are docile pit bulls that have been faithful to the human race and have resisted the instinct to attack.
