elsewhere. The victim prisoner suffered for 45 minutes.

challenging the right of Californians to require

bigger cages for factory farmed birds.

4. He has worked several years in Oklahoma and now in DC

to allow more dangerous carcinogenic insecticides

which had been banned He met with Dow Chemical and

then decided not to ban the lethal chlorpyrifos.

7. Pruitt worked to poison fishes and those who eat them.

8. His petition to allow his car to go through DC traffic

with sirens and lights has been turned down. The aide

who said it was not a good idea has been reassigned.
