The Lord of the Bees
SEE HERE Normally I would pass on a story about bees, but my sister has recently become a bee-keeper and it is fascinating to see her commitment to the little industrious critters making honey and beeswax for her. This story is about violating the rights of a bee keeper as an American citizen who should not be subject to unannounced searches and the seizure of his property without due process. Interestingly he had a strain of bees that were resistant to Monsanto's Roundup. That seems to play into the story. I think it's outrageous that this man's hives were stolen by the state. I hope he has the means to stick them with a major lawsuit. Meanwhile, why would anyone be surprised that insects are beginning to become resistant to chemicals. It's what animals do. It's called natural selection.
