Save turkey, eat more beef

That's the mayor's response to PETA's request to change the name of Turkey, TX to Tofurky, TX for Thanksgiving day.
A name change is not an option, Carson said, but he wouldn’t mind seeing people eat fewer of the birds that gave the town its name.

“If we were to acknowledge that (letter) at all, I would rather say ‘Save turkey, eat more beef,’” Carson said Tuesday. “We rely heavily on beef production. Our little town is 100 percent agriculture-based — cotton, beef, peanuts and sweet potatoes.

“If we had our choice, we’d just as soon everybody ate beef,” he said.

Here's the full story from the Amarillo Globe Times.
