Feeling a little under the weather? Throat feel a little raw? Maybe running a slight fever?
Think that it might help to go to the doctor and have a strep culture taken?
If you were Creekstone Farm in Kansas, and you wanted to test your cattle for the “Mad Cow” prion–just to be absolutely certain that the animals are clean and safe to eat–you would be told to shut up and sit down by the USDA (United States Department of Avoiding-reality-at-all-costs).
Ah, I feel better. Don’t you?
