Driving County Roads

An on line journal sharing my views. The content reflects my background as a rural person employed in agriculture and as a retired elected official of local government.

The August 29 issue of the Mankato “Free Press” contained a small article about the Caledonia County Fair in Vermont. The fair folks admit there is a lot of misunderstanding about the H1N1 virus. But they decided to ban swine stating, “they want to protect themselves from bad publicity or frivolous lawsuit if someone gets sick and blames it on a pig.”

This seems to be unfair discrimination against the swine industry and that would be a good basis for the swine industry to bring a legitimate discrimination charge.I would venture to guess that when a bout of chickenpox is going around during the fair, the officials do not ban chicken exhibits. end
