BRIDGEWATER, S.D. -- Behind the freezer doors at a meat plant mysteriously abandoned by its owner, the 44 tons of bison meat managed to hold its own for months, masked by the brutal chill of two South Dakota winters.
Once the power was cut and spring thaw arrived, nature took over. And enough rotting meat to fill a high school gym did exactly what you'd expect: It stank.
It stank at the bank. It smelled at the law office. It reeked at the cafe. Even the jewelry store wasn't immune. Everyone in this tiny town could smell it, everywhere they went. A putrid odor so downright nasty the cleaners sent to mop up the gooey mess of liquefied meat -- topped by a blanket of swarming white maggots and buzzed by a legion of flies -- gave up after two days.

Detroits’ Morgue is having this problem too.
What a freakin’ waste of food that was. Not to mention all the Bison.
I wonder how many tons of rotten meat we have in Washington?
Yeah, I was the one who posted that story too.
Seems I must have a subliminal thing for rotting flesh...

When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion - when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing - when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors - when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don't protect you against them, but protect them against you - when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice - you may know that your society is doomed.

SNIPPET . . . .When the town about 40 miles away from Sioux Falls, S.D., began to warm in the spring, the smell began to creep out. Some said the scent was like road kill. The mayor said he spent two tours of duty in Vietnam and could not recall smelling anything as bad.
Attsah pretty bad!
Ayn Rand BUMP!
What a waste of food.
I like Buffalo, the guy could have sold it for 1/2 price when it was still frozen and good and avoided this whole thing.
88 thousand pounds of good meat, what a waste.
