Poisoning of our Pets: Menu Foods CFO sold stock before pet food recall

CTV.ca | Menu Foods CFO sold stock before pet food recall

The chief financial officer of Menu Foods Income Fund says it was a “horrible coincidence” that he sold nearly half his units in the pet food company less than three weeks before a massive product recall.

Thousands of pets were affected. Dead, dying, a lifetime of problems for thousands of pets This is one of the most gut-wrenching stories I think we’ve ever reported. I don’t want to hear about deaths in Iraq, starving Darfur. I don’t care. The grief and suffering of the humans and their charges is so terrible. Don’t kill or harm the pets. A curse upon all of you that allowed this to happen.

This problem was known months before it was finally announced in the news. They are still covering up the number of pets affected.

Pet Connection has some good resources if you want to get involved and also to check the latest on the food:

Politicians really should take notice of this. Do any of us care about dem or repub when it comes to protecting our four legged family members? One of you useless liars have an epiphany and step up.

Charles in Space

Super-Rich-Guy, Charles Simonyi, who obtained his riches with the development of Microsoft’s Word, will blast off from Kazakhstan at 1731 GMT. His pal, Martha Stewart, who journeyed to Kazakhstan, is cooking him a meal to go.

Charles has a real spiff website that’s worth checking out. Live launch broadcast and updates. Why is he doing it? Rich. Probably looking at the moon for investment purposes.

You want to go into space? Charles paid 20 million but he’s going swank.
Space Adventures can hook you up with some type of launch. There’s always some country willing to shoot your bored, rich ass into the sky!

I’m really amazed there isn’t something like this with NASA. Make a branch of NASA just for this. With the always struggling-for-cash space programs, this could make a difference. What? We are ok with the Russians getting ahead of us now?
Are we not the Kings of Kapitalism?
