Zoltan Putnam

Sometimes it is better to be named Zoltan.

Someone in Hungary is upset that we are raising Mangalitsa pigs in the USA (Hun / Google trans.)

I'll bet that if I was Hungarian, there'd be more unqualified celebration and joy about the establishment of the Mangalitsa as the Western Hemisphere's super-premium pig breed.

If the New World is going to have such a pig, the Hungarians are better off if it is their pig, instead of say, Germany's Swabian-Hall, China's Meishan or one of Spain's several Iberian breeds. If the Mangalitsa is the super-pig, it could benefit Hungarians in several ways.
