DURST: Meat Inspection
This is hard to believe but apparently Bill Clinton thinks just because the Government's meat inspection system was instituted a lousy century ago, suddenly now it is in desperate need of an immediate overhaul. He's a radical hippie reformer bent on changing things, is what he is. Proposing to replace the perfectly good "sniff and poke" method now in place with some so called "scientific testing", totally ignoring the ninety year record of semi-success the current system has compiled is dangerously disruptive, not to mention smacking of pandering to the rich and powerful consumer lobby.Detecting contaminated meat by giving it a quick smell as it whips by on a conveyor belt at what meat packing companies consider a reasonable speed, like Mach 6, sounds like a top notch method to me. Cheap too. Besides, can you think of a more effective way to get people to eat healthier than by throwing a wild card like a stack of E. coli burgers into fast food mix once in a while? "Eat 'em by the sickfull." The new system undoubtedly will mandate that only two parts per thousand mouse feces be allowed in sausages instead of the current four. I suppose next Clinton's going to try to drag the Catholic Church into the Twentieth Century as well.
