RE: E-M:/ Gerald Henning and MDA failure to respond: LSJ today

Enviro-Mich message from Frank Ambrose <snakeman1549@yahoo.com>

Mr. Henning is basically getting crap (no pun
intended) from the bureaucrats on the list who are
thinking of their own situation and how they would
feel if the citizenry they deal with started yelling
at them. They seem to be mad that people would target
the "low hanging fruit" instead of going after
legislators and the higher-ups in the agencies. 

On that note, someone has now compiled list of those
in charge of the Michigan Department of Agriculture,
the Michigan Commission of Agriculture, and the
director of the MDA. People should call them and voice
their concerns about CAFO's and all the pollution and
animal suffering they cause. The numbers and addresses
listed are for their personal homes. Lets hold them
accountable for their decision to give CAFO's a free
ride in Michigan. Don't forget to tell them to drop
the charges on Mr. Henning.
