Now every case of the quite rare Cruzfeldt-Jacobs disease will be blamed on "mad cow" BSE, as it was in England.

(Early warnings: insomnia, memory loss, depression, anxiety, withdrawal, fearfulness)

An old guy/gal living in an high crime neighborhood would never know the difference.

Judging from the recent comments by the nine dwarfs, I'd say some of that beef was served up in the green room at the last debate.

I doubt this will be nothing more than a scare, from what I have read so far, there is little chance this will result in anything more than a quarenteen of that particular farm.

When all the handwringers dump their shares in the beef industry, I'm gonna be buying all the shares I can

At first glance, the title looked like "Mad cow may have eaten state official".

No, they said that the "muscle cuts" had been processed and vCJD was not transmitted by muscle cuts.

Translation: Although we did find the contaminated Holstein, it was 14 days after slaughter, so even though the meat had probably already been eaten, I'm serving beef over the holiday, even though my goose has already been cooked.

Oh sure you are! They've already begun - the demoncrats are promising hearings, and screaming it's greed, greed, greed (not THEIRS, of course!). Grrrrr...

No, every case of vCJD will be blamed on BSE, and every case in the US will be blamed on the US. (the little v in vCJD is a big letter)

My neice lived in England during the major Mad Cow scare, she loved it because beef was very cheap.

Thousands if not millions of head of cattle will be slaughtered and their brains tested for vCJD.
