For those who don't know, here's a link. http://www.suntimes.com/output/news/horseban07.html My thoughts are this is a complete waste of time. I don't see where the US gov. can just draw the line at the horse. What are we measuring, intelligence? Seems a little discriminatory to cows and chickens (or insulting?). I really don't like government telling me what animal I can, and can not eat. That bothers me the most. Plus those horse owner's arguments. If there is a market for it, then more power to 'em! I say don't interfere! Let the market be the dictator of whether the horse meat industry goes under, not the government! I hope this gets shot down in the Senate. John Cornyn supports this, Hutchison has not responded to me.
