Save the animals

I just came across this really nice Nick Kristof column from last week about California's Proposition 2 on the ballot to require not horribly inhumane conditions for factory farm animals.  I am certainly willing to pay more for my meat to have been treated right when it was an animal (which is why I'm increasingly trying to buy it from Whole Foods), but I would also like to know when I stop at Wendy's for a burger that the cow had a semi-decent life before it made it to my tray.  I don't know that this law would get to semi-decent, but it is a start.
