Cruelty to Blueberries?

According to today’s Press Herald, Tracy Reiman from PETA has written a letter to Governor Baldacci to object to his efforts to convert the Stinson sardine cannery to a lobster processing plant.

“Can the cruelty,” Reiman urged the governor, “and turn Stinson into a cannery for Maine’s famous wild blueberries instead.”

To which Baldacci spokesman David Farmer, who heard about the letter for the first time Tuesday, tactfully replied, “But what about the blueberries?”
