Rabbit Stories Discussed on Rush Limbaugh Show!

This blog has been on one heck of a ride during the past two weeks, thanks in large part to public interest in “Chasing Rabbits,” a series of nearly a dozen posts in which I highlighted the hare-raising plight of John and Judy Dollarhite, a Nixa, Mo., couple handed a $90,643 fine by the USDA for selling more than $500 worth of rabbits in a single calendar year.

Two days after breaking the story, I reported that the story was gaining traction.  With a week, the story had made it to Drudge – sort of.  Today, however, I learned that two of my articles about the Dollarhites — Family Facing $4 Million in Fines for Selling Bunnies and USDA Appears To Be Caving on Rabbit Fines — published at Andrew Breitbart’s BigGovernment.com were cited by Mark Steyn today as he sat in as Rush Limbaugh’s guest host on “The Rush Limbaugh Show.”

The articles appeared in Mark Steyn’s Stack of Stuff on Rush’s website between links to Steyn’s Orange County Register post about udderly insane regulations and Alan Fram’s Washington Post piece, Obama proposes revamping regulations to aid businesses.

The good news about all of this publicity for these stories and the Dollarhites is, as I reported May 24, that the USDA appears to be caving.

The only downside, if there really is one, is that I missed Rush’s show today while writing a piece about another case involving USDA thuggery.  Stay tuned for that!
