16 Dec 2006 ... In Memory

Virgil Butler has died.

He was an incredible person. He was the whistle blower, calling attention to a Tyson slaughter house. He got employee awards for being the best at killing chickens.

And then, with the help of his lovely partner Laura, he turned it all around. He became an animal advocate, speaking against the things he had witnessed. He became vegan and started a sanctuary where he and Laura cared for chickens and dogs and cats.

They are the bravest people I've ever known. And I admire them. And I am sad that they've been separated.
