Sensationalist recycling

An Idaho veterinarian has had a brilliant idea. Deal with the manure from farms by feeding it to maggots, who use half of it to build their own bodies and break the other half down into a clean soil amendment. Then feed the maggots to rainbow trout.

Alas, this article from the Associated Press sensationalizes the process a bit, stating that it would involve feeding manure to trout. That's a bit like saying that humans eat sunlight, since we eat plants that feed off of sunlight.

Never thought you'd see manure compared favorably with sunlight, did you?

So, Girl, how the heck can I reach you? And when is your next book coming out! If Ann What'shername can right "religious" musings like the chapter, "Why I Make Sam Go to Church," I'm sure there's a market for you!
By the way, music at CBC is mediocre without you!
What's your email address? Love, Gwenyth

Oops, that's "write" religious
musings. We've got too much
"right religious musings" going on these days!
