Well, it's been less than a week since I conjectured that Mad Cow was already here and our government knew it. Now it's all over the news - the news, by the way, that massive portions of the U.S. are not paying attention to because it's Christmas, fer chrissake! Huh. Isn't that a coincidence.

Note that the story linked above has the requisite blather about how beef is completely safe, from meat industry officials, with no balancing commentary from anyone stronger than CSPI or Consumer Reports. Assertions such as "The infectious agent is only found in the central nervous system tissue," which have been shown to be untrue, are passed on to news consumers as gospel. We'll see how well the grand BS strategy works... who knows, it's worked before.
