Reader: Horse meat argument is the most idiotic thing since your elk vigil piece

Categories: Cafe Society

Yesterday Jenn Wohletz weighed in on the European horse-meat "scandal," revealing that not only would she eat horse, she'd eat it again. "It's horse meat, not poison, and if horse meat were sold at grocery stores here in the States, I might be nibbling on a haunch of roasted mustang right now," she says.

Would you eat horse? Even the question offended some.

Says Hillary:

This is the most idiotic thing I've read since you wrote about the elk vigil in Boulder. Trying to convince people it's okay to eat horse because other countries do it is an insult. Plus your persuasive tactics suck ass.

And then there's this from Fernanda:

You just lost me as a reader - permanently.

But Barbara responds:

I do not understand the problem. I lived in Belgium (have Belgian citizenship) and I bought horse meat, cooked horse meat and we ate horse meat and we are all alive today.

I remember in the 1970s or 1980s when Jack-In-The Box restaurants were accused of adding horse meat to their ground beef. At that time, the restaurant chain was owned by Ralston Purina! I can't remember what the outcome was, but since I used to run to JITB a lot back in those days, I may very well have consumed horse meat.
