Who's Collecting Personal Info About You?

Most of us share information about ourselves without realizing we have done so. For example, your favorite grocery items, restaurants, shoe brand, and even your medical prescription history could be shared and perhaps sold to a third party.

Attorney General King's office regularly cautions consumers to be careful about revealing personal information because it is often used to steal your identity and commit fraud and other crimes.

I think you will be surprised at how your personal habits are spread around the world without your knowledge. Please follow the link below to a thought-provoking message from the Federal Trade Commission.

It's NOT What's for Dinner

Horse meat for human consumption? The idea is repugnant to every individual I have spoken to in the last few days, not one person could even fathom the prospect. Yet, a meat company in Roswell has applied to the U.S.D.A. for a permit to begin slaughtering horses, ostensibly in hopes of expanding their business.

Attorney General King is strongly against the plan to begin butchering horses. The latest news about horses in New Mexico comes on the heels of other negative accounts about the state's horse racing industry and a horse auction facility where some horses were found to be horribly suffering from injury and malnutrition.

News of the horse slaughtering plan spread rapidly throughout New Mexico and today is a national story. Please follow the link below.
