I found it interesting that the news article in the paper omitted WHO Vikon Farms sells their chickens to. Several years ago an executive of Vikon stopped at my place and gave me his business card. He told me he was looking for chicken growers who would be willing to raise their chickens in such a way to meet the dietary requirements of the Muslim community. Of course, it wasn't mentioned, now that they plan on opening a plant over in Arkadelphia. Do we want to provide Muslims with chickens? It also bothers me that local restaurants sell "casa" fish at their restaurants. Case is an Asian catfish, mostly from Communist Vietnam, our enemies who killed so many of our men. So, Vikon, where are those chickens going? Are they going to people who want to destroy Christianity and the Jewish people?

I find it funny that the local officials tried to use this as "jobs they helped create here." Do they just read about new businesses in other local papers to try to claim their influence?
