  No, this title is not a misprint, folks. Johnston Memorial Hospital found an interesting way last year to make their fundraisers a bit more fun, and they did it with a man dressed up as a pig mascot… who then got arrested. While the arrest was kind of a joke, the fundraiser was not, as they hospital raised more than $33,000 with the mascot’s help to benefit their Mountain States Foundation and improve care for people in and around the hospital.   Plus, overall, the campaign raised a whopping $209,000 – not only their most successful campaign to date, but something that proves that pigs can really bring in the bacon and fry it in the pan! Ok, bad pun. Sorry.  
  In a weird and unfortunate story last week from the United Kingdom, three people have been arrested for what police say is leaving a pig's head outside a center used by Muslims in Leicester. Sadly, this sort of thing for attention (or to intimidate the group in question) is really nothing new, both in England and the United States.   The pig, of course, is offensive to Muslims since in their religion they consider it unclean, and they are not allowed to eat pork. So, naturally, finding a pig head is a pretty clear symbol and sign of offense, disrespect, and hate.   The Muslim center in that area is apparently considering a move into a new neighborhood, but there have unfortunately been a great deal of protests in the English neighborhood, and by the British National Party against the move and against opening a new center in general.
