"Fox affiliate KDFW-TV reported last week that a criminal investigation is under way at Columbia Packing Co., Inc., after photographs surfaced showing what appeared to be pig blood flowing in nearby Cedar Creek, which feeds directly into the Trinity River"

On its website, the 90-year-old Columbia Packing company boasts about its "top quality pork" and "tender fully-cooked smoked Beef Brisket."

Starbucks adding booze to the menu

"Four to six new or remodeled stores in Southern California will offer alcoholic drinks by the end of this year, as will some shops in Atlanta and Chicago" says the Los Angeles Times.

"The chain began testing its alcohol menu in its hometown of Seattle in 2010. It now offers beers for $5 and wines by the glass for $7 to $9 in five locations in that city and one in Portland, Ore. Beer options include Rogue Dead Guy Ale, and the wine menu features a Pinot Noir from Oregon, a Prosecco from Italy and a Malbec from Argentina."
