If this is about Hog Factories, say so. They are unhumane, and the most likely thing to get everyone to quit eating pork.
As a former farmer, I see much of what goes on in these factories as simple animal abuse.
This is not the Iowa I once knew. This hog factory practice stinks, and makes Iowa stink worse.

For some reason I couldn't get in to comment on the Mental Health Institute's closure.

So, will make a comment here until I figure out why.

Close the faciltiy so there will be more money for the State---University of Iowa football staff. Head coach is wanting a bonus for getting into a bowl game. Come on, lets help these people.

Iowa must keep on cutting salaries and laying off State employees, especially those in the helping professions, law enforcement etc.
