c49bf430-63c0-11e1-8398-001cc4c0325c People know the risks associated with eating raw oysters and should be able to decide for themselves. 25
c49bf4b2-63c0-11e1-8399-001cc4c0325c The federal government should keep out of the oyster business. 42
c49bf52a-63c0-11e1-839a-001cc4c0325c The legislation has its merits, but certain provisions need to be made. 3
