Where's the Beef?

Second US Mad Cow Suspected

Agriculture Secretary Mike Johanns confirmed late Friday that an older animal had tested positive for the brain-wasting disease, sparking fears that foreign countries would shun American beef again, at a time Mr. Johanns is making a strong push to reassure export markets that the nation's beef is safe.

How about instead of reassuring export markets beef is safe, we actually make beef safe and stop feeding cows and other animals to our cows? They're herbivores, for Christ's sake. Whose bright idea was it to turn them into cannibals?
