Eye On Olympia

Of bacon, longhorns and seaweed-eating sheep...

Here's the quiz:

a) Where does the cattle-calling nickname "Bossy" come from?
b) Why is bacon not so tasty anymore?
c) And what is the world's only seaweed-eating sheep?

Find out all this -- and much, much more -- in three minutes of testimony by Sen. Ken Jacobsen, D-Seattle.

Driven by the same impulse that leads gardeners to cultivate old "heirloom" tomato varieties (among them: Mike Gregoire), Jacobsen is proposing a state recognition program for "heritage livestock and poultry breeds."
