The hooplah over spinach and E.Coli would be funny but for the gastro-intestinal distress and death involved. But for those of us who have been paying attention it's especially ironic that SPINACH = BAD has blanketed all forms of news media, with only verrrrry rarely any context given that the sickening agent is almost certainly from cow feces from a nearby farm. If it turns out that the spinach spontaneously generated its own E.Coli, though, I promise to eat some.

This is one of those I wanted to get to at the time but couldn't: Please note that the type of person who believes it is appropriate to harass unknown black people for being black is, coincidentally, the type of person who has a deer head handy because he's on his way back from a hunting trip.
