positive for tuberculosis at a single poultry plant owned by one of
the largest processors in the U.S.
In two batteries of skin tests last month, given to 765 fresh
processing employees at the Decatur, Ala., plant owned by Wayne Farms

treated like kings by many not all local and state Governments. We
have a problem.

Bush has betrayed us
