342. Tainted Eggs

Two Iowa farms that together recalled more than half a BILLION potentially tainted eggs this month share close ties, including suppliers of chickens and feed. Both farms are linked to businessman Austin "Jack" DeCoster, who has been cited for numerous health, safety and employment violations over the years. DeCoster owns Wright County Egg, the original farm that recalled 380 million eggs Aug. 13 after they were linked to more than 1,000 reported cases of salmonella poisoning. (read more:

336. DC Metro Fare Increase

DC Metro introduced the second phase of its fare increases for fiscal year 2010. The increase is aimed at closing the huge budget gap the transit agency faces. Metro is now charging extra for all rides during its new "peak of the peak" period, (aka the new busiest of the busiest times of day). Programming difficulties and rider confusion are complicating implementation of the new fares.
