Re: spray-mount



Dear Friends,

One more on spray fixatives:  skim milk might be a fine idea, but
remember that it comes from cows, who are cruelly enslaved
throughout the world (I grew up on a farm and conditions, even on
the family farm, have only changed for the worse for the livestock),
and whose excretions, due to the chemicals with which they are
routinely dosed, and the chemicals with which the crops they eat
(alfalfa, corn silage, etc.) are heavily dosed, are now understood to
be major contributors to the polluting of our earth, hence our air.
Please don't dismiss me as a lunatic; look at this week's NYTimes
(I forget which day) about the quantities of pollutants.   I am
certainly not an apologiest for 3M, considering their record in
animal testing and abuse, but I do think we should consider various
aspects before making our decisions.
