    Every day businesses are affected from a change of ownership or management, a new law, a new diet or for whatever reason. The Atkins diet caused millions of people to eat less carbohydrates. Our company and our customers' companies lost a lot of money and employees. After struggling for a year or two, we all survived and are now doing better than ever. Food companies and restaurants in the US are changing their recipes to eliminate trans-fats. Should we feel sorry for the trans fat manufacturers or for Kentucky Fried Chicken for having to change their famous original recipe? Anti-smoking laws caused tobacco farmers to switch to other crops. Is anyone crying for them? Pork farmers will find another way to make money. And the idea of Jews protesting a supermarket because they DON'T sell pork is pretty funny indeed. Better to be concerned about Putin's recent sale of nuclear fuel to Iran. (pork's not healthy, anyways)
