Fred is the patron saint of cows. Fred Tuttle, that is. See the indie
movie "Man with a Plan" about a Vermont cow farmer who runs for congress
so he can get that federal government health insurance for his wife's

Pat Leahy and endorsed Leahy (even voted for him). You can still buy
"Spread Fred" bumper stickers...
