And speaking of America’s bizarre willingness to overlook the filth in the food chain as long as the cheap beef keeps coming, the most viewed story at the WSJournal last week was on McDonald’s cutting the cheese on its dollar double burger.

What this country needs is another food scare — with a headline-grabbing “attack of the killer wheat,” they could eliminate the buns.
