Pardoning Turkeys

President Obama 'pardoned' two Broad-Breasted White turkeys, a presidential tradition honoring Thanksgiving, Other turkeys were pardoned as political fun, such as this one in North Dakota, I hope some day that the turkey industry will not have so much influence on Washingotn, DC politics and the president will be able to pardon a traditional breed bird.
Bill Morem, columnist for the local newspaper in San Luis Obispo, The Tribune, dispelled some commonly held myths about turkeys in his column, Thanks, Bill! Turkeys are indeed noble and delightful birds.
