Mad Cows

From an article in the NY Times on June 11/05 reporting on the discovery of an American mad cow, possibly one that was not fed in Canada:

Beef has soared to record prices in American grocery stores, and meatpackers have struggled from the lack of Canadian cattle they normally count on.

What a weird world, eh? A few months ago the US farmers convinced that judge in where was it? Wisconsin? Minnesota? One o them there border states...to put the stall on reopening the border. Hole up there, Bessie! So what have we got? Americans suffering. Canadians suffering. Cows suffering. Cows most of all, I guess.

I still cannot comprehend what flaming idjit decided it was a good idea to feed a bunch of ruminants meat byproducts. And how the hell did he convince anyone else?

But having said that, I bet we're going to find in the not too distant future that the US has been lying all along about the incidence of BSE in that country.

Mad Monks - I wonder if Chogyam Trungpa ever ate beef?

Trungpa would have handled Hunter S easily. I like to write a conversation between Trungpa and Hunter S.

No wonder the cows are angry, er, mad. Myself, I'd be furious.
