Dave Noon, the mastermind behind the award-winning blog Axis of Evel Knievel, sent me a link to a Boing Boing discussion of the pollution produced by America's modern factory pig farmers. While that lengthy discussion can be found here, it all began with an essay entitled "Boss Hog" by Jeff Tietz that appeared in Rolling Stone. You can link directly to it here. The above photo comes from a Google Maps search of Smithfield, NC and depicts a confinement hog operation with its waste lagoons. Yuck.
