Colin Powell RIP

Colin Powell has died of blood cancer at age 84. According to this article, his family says he was “fully vaccinated” against the coronavirus.

The people who make the products we use don’t have a choice in the marketplace – they have to use the most efficient procedures to procure and produce our food. Animals suffer immensely in the process.
