Ann, reality; reality, Ann. So nice of you to join us.

After doubling its testing for mad cow disease in response to the first case in the United States, Agriculture Secretary Ann Veneman says the government may expand its survey beyond the 40,000 animals now planned.

Testifying Wednesday before the House Appropriations Committee's subcommittee on agriculture, Veneman did not specify how many more animals might be tested as part of what she called 'a very aggressive surveillance plan.' The tests will include some apparently healthy animals, she said, in addition to those thought to be at high risk.
