Yes, YOU can run a corrupt govt. agency and NEVER pay taxes!

"I... Forgot."

Upon the death of a possible BSE cow, "the unidentified doctor preserved the brain stem sample in formalin... but then 'simply forgot' about it until mid-July." That's the reason why we're only hearing about it now. Any questions?

You have two cows.

Second US case of Mad Cow confirmed. The initial rapid screening test in November was positive, but a more stringent test was negative, and the USDA told America that the cow was BSE-free. The agency did not mention that it had skipped the Western Blot test, used in 2003 to confirm the first U.S. mad cow.

BSE Inquiry report

BSE Inquiry report Took me the better part of two weeks of fishing around to find the online version of the £300 million U.K. report on BSE/mad-cow disease/nvCJD. BSEInquiry.gov.uk didn't work. Got this one from the redoubtable Mad-Cow.org.
