Poisons in our food, poisons in bird feed, too?

NUEVO VALLARTA, Nayarit, Mexico - Having internet access gives you access to all those great emails from friends, emails from people to whom you own money and stories about horrors of every kind imaginable.

And so in this past week, just as I was getting over the 'pink slime' scandal, up pops one about the Scotts company (think, Miracle-Gro) deliberately putting pesticides in its bird seed.

And by doing so, the company was killing God knows how many sparrows, finches, robins and other birds in the process.

At my house in New York, it would also be killing legions of squirrels who use my bird feeders more often than drunks hit the ATMs on Saturday night.

Here a link to the story:

Sorry it isn't a hot link, but BlogPress hasn't gotten that far in its development.

That said, watch what you put out to feed those birdies. Some corporate type might not be as kind as you are.
