Kosher Pork Comes to Queens (UPDATED)

By Jeffrey Goldberg

Who says America isn't the Promised Land? Friend-of-Goldblog Philip Gourevitch has discovered a source for kosher pork.

UPDATE: Please read the comments section of Voz is Neias, the Orthodox paper, for just the greatest conversation ever in the history of kosher pork.
