Plainview Workers’ "Emancipation"

Feb 20, 2013

 

This is a story I wish I had written. It is a story I want Michael Pollan and all his technophobic beef-hating fans to read. It is about the people who were—let me burrow into the foodies’ mindset here for a moment—"emancipated" from their jobs when Cargill closed its plant in Plainview, Texas.

It’s about the small businesses that are at risk—"doomed" would be a better word, I suppose—because of the closing.

Read it.  http://stateimpact.npr.org/texas/2013/02/19/a-plant-closes-on-the-plains-and-a-community-ponders-its-future/

Then get back to me on how badly we need to curtail beef production in this country.
