Where Do We Go From Here?

I'm almost afraid to find out. Reading the newspaper today, I had to blink several times to make sure I wasn't reading excerpts from a sci-fi novel. Have you heard that the government has given the go ahead for entertaining proposals of the sale of genetically modified animals for meat? And on top of that the meat doesn't even have to be labeled as such. Don't worry the FDA says it is safe!? Kind of gives me visions of the wild haired scientist in his zany lab deciding to mix a cow with a sheep and see what he comes up with!

It isn't even safe to turn to vegetarianism because for a while now the sale of genetically modified fruits and vegetables has been approved. On top of that you think that wearing cotton is a green thing to do? Turns out that the majority of cotton in the US is "Round-Up ready" meaning that the fields can be sprayed with Round-Up to kill the weeds and the cotton plant won't be affected.

And an even weirder story??? A couple in Alexandria, VA operate a salon where customers can descale their feet by placing them into a tank filled with garra rufa fish. The fish apparently enjoy dining on dead human skin cells and will leave your feet feeling like a baby's bottom!

I can hardly wait to see tomorrow's news! Mom
