Governor Declares Saturday "Michigan Meatout Day"
[Detroit Free Press]
Michigan hunters and meat producers had a collective cow today at the news Gov. Jennifer Granholm had issued an official proclamation declaring Saturday "Michigan Meatout Day."
The proclamation was labeled “unconscionable and insensitive to livestock and dairy farmers by the Michigan Farm Bureau.
“It’s inconceivable to us that the governor could stoop to this level of telling people what they should and shouldn’t eat based on the philosophies of 'food elitists,' ” said Farm Bureau President Wayne Wood.
