Animal rendering is converting "waste animal tissue into stable, value-added materials." Don't you love being reminded that "animal byproducts" are transformed into your "personal care products?" Ewwww.
And in case you were wondering, federal regulations do allow you to carry "toy transformer robots" onto an airplane.
Which is great, because now I can fly to DC and LA this fall. Whew!
And my thanks to Mark for bringing back DC swag from ALA.
