Remember Champ, the happiest dog in the world? His owner, Candice Sedighan, just shared with us a new series of photos she’s taken of the adorable dog and his new found friends. Recently, Candice ran into a man who was holding chicks in a box. “He asked me if I think any factories would want them, but I offered to take them instead so I could find them a safer home. I bought all the necessary supplies to keep them comfortable and healthy for a few days, and will be donating them to a local college’s teaching farm.” See more photos of Champ and his adventures via Instagram.

I find it very hard to believe that a man would walk up to this woman and ask her if she thought a “factory” - which I’m assuming is a large-scale chicken operation - would want his box of chicks. The vast majority of chicken and pork farms are vertically integrated, meaning that the same people have control of the livestock from conception to the time they are sent to slaughter. This not only keeps costs down as the livestock does not have to travel as far (meaning a lower carbon footprint) but it ensures that the chicken produced is as safe as they can make it. Because the producer controls the variables, they can make sure that there is no excessive exposure to disease (lowering the need for antibiotics to keep the chickens from getting sick) and that all the animal welfare and safety regulations are satisfied. The chicken farm wouldn’t just take a box of chicks off some guy’s hands because they wouldn’t know what diseases they had been exposed to or the conditions they had been living in prior to coming to the farm. So, I’m asking that before you spread inaccurate information on agriculture, you talk to someone who’s involved in it. As a seventh generation cattle-raiser, we do this because we love knowing that what we do feeds the world.

"Nobody wants a hero when there isn’t something to save." 
I forget where I read that, and I’m probably paraphrasing, but that just stuck with me. Post War Useless and Unwanted Harry makes sense, not that its his fault, really. But heroes in peaceful times are trouble.

A great example of why you don’t have any idea what is happening in the world around you. I don’t generally blog this stuff but, you Should know Time Magazine is not the only media to do this.

And people say the U.S. doesn’t have media censorship.
