Merry Christmas

In the spirit of the holidays, let's say something about bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE, aka Mad Cow Disease).

Imagine, if you will, a fantasy world. Imagine a world where people ate food which was produced locally, on small family farms. A world where communities of people were self-sufficient in agriculture. A world where people actually knew where their beef came from.

In such a world, Ann Veneman wouldn't need to tell us not to panic.

Happy Holidays!


It's more a question of what your beef's been eating than where it's been, but I'm just nitpicking. :)

Imagine a world where nobody ate beef or chickens. Only fish, so juicy sweeeeeeet....

And merry Christmas to you, too.
