U.S. Reports Possible Case of Mad Cow

I've been saying for several years that we have mad cow, but that the government is not doing enough testing. You will remember back to a couple of months ago when a farmer was fined for testing all of his cattle. No, there was nothing else to it; he just wanted to test all of his cattle, and the government came down on him for it. Strange but true; read about that here.

The USDA is *still* not testing a significant percentage of the cattle, though they are testing all 'downer' cattle; at least, that's a start.
