Front Page: Pakistan Votes, Beef Recall, Bush in Africa

  • Pakistanis turned out this morning to vote in parliamentary elections. Results are thought to further diminish President Pervez Musharraf and present the US government with a challenging new political lineup, as it pursues its fight against the Taliban and Al Qaeda in the region. At least four candidates, including Benazir Bhutto, and nearly 100 other Pakistanis have been killed during the campaign. Following the weekend blast, there has been scattered violence and voting irregularities, but nothing that stopped polling.
  • The USDA has issued the largest beef recall in history. Targeting 143 million pounds of beef from the Westland/Hallmark Meat Packing Company in Chino, California, Dick Raymond, the undersecretary of agriculture for food safety, said there was a "remote probability" that the meat from the could cause illness in humans. The recall states that cattle that had lost the ability to walk since passing pre-processing inspections were slaughtered without an inspector examining them for chronic illness. About 37 million pounds of the recalled beef have already been shipped to school lunch programs.
  • President Bush is in Tanzania as part of his six-day trip through Africa. Tackling subjects like poverty and disease, Mr. Bush announced a program distributing free bed nets for all young Tanzanian children, to stop the spread of malaria, and also signed a $698 million grant of foreign aid to the country.

i heard this story on the news with a video of a cow being run over by a forklift, so i missed the jokes entirely. i eat meat, but anyone who can torture a living thing like that is a psychopath.

The word "beef" in my house references passing gas, so i couldnt make a sexual reference, but a nice fart joke or two would do.

Excuse me, but I believe this was the second biggest beef recall in U.S. History. The first beef recall was when my girlfriend ... what? Come on! How can someone NOT make a sexual reference to that!
