That was some heatwave! I'm glad that it cooled off for a bit, and that going outdoors is no longer oppressive. 
There's not a lot to report this month, but the three items below are all interesting.  Enjoy July.

Costco Sued for Treatment of Chickens
People who eat roasted chickens from Costco, until now, had little idea of the miserable lives and deaths of the birds they find so affordable.  A law suit from Legal Impact for Chickens brings to light that Costco is violating state laws that exist to protect animals.  The Washington Post published an in depth article about this, but most newsletter readers cannot open links from WaPo without a subscription. Here is a story about it that you can access. And here's an article from the NY Times from February about an investigation into the lives and deaths of the birds.

New Book by Earthing Ed
Ed Winters, aka Earthling Ed, has a new book out called This Is Vegan Propaganda (And other lies the meat industry tells you).    If you don't know about this man, I highly recommend you watch him on his YouTube channel.  Here's a link to a great talk.
