The U.S. Department of Agriculture failed to test for mad cow disease or collect the correct portion of the brain on nearly 500 suspect cows over the past two years -- including some in categories considered most likely to be infected -- according to agency records obtained by United Press International.
How is it that UPI owns the mad cow story? I mean, the coverage in normal papers is about as consistent as USDA's testing program. Seriously, it's a miracle we found bse at all. But there will be more, whether or not we can detect it.
