Pink slime hysteria?

So was the pink slime news just hysteria, or should consumers be concerned that this ingredient has been in our ground beef for the last 20 years?

The Gazette thinks it's hysteria. 

Which burger was made with lean, finely-textured beef? Hard to tell from looking at it, it's true.  And apparently it's "safe."

But the whole pink slime issue has caused people to think a bit more carefully about where their food comes from.  And that is good.

Oh, and by the way, did you hear that Twitter is going to cut the length of tweets from 140 to 133 characters, saving the company $1.7 billion a year?

April Fools!

(One advantage to being late with my usual Saturday post.)

Oh, the burger on the right is made with pink slime.
