Mad Cow

By now I suspect there are only three people left in the US who have not heard about the mad cow in Washington state. I've personally had moral qualms about eating anything produced by our meat industry (though I have no moral qualms about eating meat), but this was the last straw and as soon as I heard the news, I gave up beef. That's harder than it sounds.

Last night, I was at a restaurant and almost ordered a burger before I realized what I was doing. Today I left my lunch sitting on my kitchen counter and wound up buying food from vending machines at work. Somehow I failed to realize that "Beefaroni" contained beef. I ate it, but I now wish I hadn't.

Maybe just giving up meat completely would be easier. Were I to become a vegetarian, I suspect I would be far more cautious about what I order. Hmm ...
