#1 We're told not to be too worried, but I'm betting the livestock farmers in California (and wherever state/country these cattle came from or are going to) are a tad interested.

Scary stuff if you're told to 'eliminate' your herd to curb the spread.

#2 These things can happen randomly if the immune system has a weakness to prions.

#3 Understood, but this is in California, BP. The 'meat-is-evil', 'industry-is-abominable' and 'Goody! Another deflective crisis!' loons have the upper hand in Sacramento.

#4 Not only that, but a Mad Cow Tax provides enhanced revenue opportunities. Not to mention inspection fees, disposal charges and general beak-wetting.

#5 I wouldn't Put it past PETA to infect cows or screw with test results "for the greater good".

I hope they've ended the practice of putting ow meat into cow food because that never made much since to me seeing as they are herbivores and all.

Also, it's an opportunity for those of us in states that haven't destroyed their meat industry. I suspect that significant parts of California's current population are going to be enthusiastic converts to the cause of tofu.

#8 Grass fed, dry aged, hormone free, organic buffalo. Mmmmmmmmm!

Doesn't even come from California! Tastes a whole heckuva lot better than hormone injected, fed whatever, wet aged pink slime. Expensive though. And nowhere near enough of it to keep McDonalds pumping out the burgers.

#9 But, hey, there's still bacon.

#10 Where does that pink McDonalds' rejected, government school lunch approved, ammonia-beef goo come in?

OK, pink slime might have been going too far. Might have. But I think the rest is true. And if you bite into organic buffalo, or even beef for that matter, you'll taste the difference.
