BSE

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.
