First milk quality law in U.S.

In 1856, the first milk quality law in the U.S. was signed by the Governor of Massachusetts prohibiting adulteration of milk. An individual had to take a complaint to court. With no official enforcement, the law was ineffective against “swill milk,” the poor, thin output of cows kept in sicky conditions and fed on distillery refuse. Unsafe milk was a public health hazard, sometimes deadly to infants. So the state passed a law on (6 Apr 1859) authorizing cities to appoint their own official Inspector of Milk. He was empowered to enter the premises of handlers of milk, and to take specimens for analysis, the results of which could be evidence used for prosecution. The law set ten dollar fines for selling swill milk. Boston was the first city in the U.S. to appoint a full-time Inspector of Milk, on 10 Aug 1859.«[Image: A New York City inspector at a grocery testing milk with a lactometer, c.1887.]

Praying for a Parking Space

A laywoman was driving down the street in a sweat because she had an important meeting and couldn’t find a parking space. Looking up toward heaven, she said, “Lord, take pity on me. If you find me a parking place I’ll go to Mass every Sunday for the rest of my life and give up drinking wine.”
Miraculously, a parking space opened up right in front of her destination.
The woman looked up to heaven and said, “Never mind, Lord; I found one on my own.”
