**** A Vow For 2011: No Cheap Chicken <http://www.salon.com/food/ethics_of_eating/index.html?story=/food/francis_lam/2011/01/01/cheap_chicken_manifesto>
Francis Lam, Salon

To stop having my money support chicken that is mass-produced at unbelievable scale, poisoning the earth and water for hundreds of miles, that is treated brutally, that goes through a disassembly line so fast and furious that it injures 1 out of every 3 poorly paid workers who works on it? Or to keep supporting Mr. Charles, to share in his chicken, to know what his work means to him? To have that chance to meet the many Charles Gabriels, the taco truck cooks and the noodle shop owners and all the other working-class cooks whose cuisines I adore and whose stories I want to hear and help tell?
