On a Lighter Note, OR, The Coughing Cows…

I had to chuckle at a gaffe made (repeatedly, according to this account) by Jack Layton in Brandon, Manitoba. During a speech to agricultural producers, Layton made repeated reference to SARS as a problem for the cattle industry. Of course he meant BSE, and he made a joke out of the confusion in the end, but not everyone got the joke.
It does seem that big-city Jack is a little out of touch with agricultural concerns, unless SARS has managed to jump the species barrier, and nobody knew about it until Jack discovered it, which might make Layton a genius.
