Pork doesn’t deserve our prejudice

By Baxter Black: PNT columnist When the Asian flu hit the country in 2003, were people warned to stay away from Chinese restaurants and Japanese cars? When the West Nile virus was diagnosed in humans did the Health Department tell us to avoid going to Egypt? Does riding Tennessee walkers give you a charley horse? […]
