On a story about the horse meat scandal in Europe and the chances of it happening in the U.S.:

• With all of the nasty things people put into their bodies (smoking, fast food, Mountain Dew, etc.), I think it’s amusing that people recoil in “horror” over horse meat — Michael W.

• At least it’s identifiable as an animal. Gotta be better for you than “green slime.” People eat cows, pigs, deer, bear, squirrel, rabbit, etc. ... why scoff at a little horse meat — Scott H.

• Would not be surprised and wouldn’t care. Why cry over horse meat when we have wood (cellulose), high fructose corn syrup and pink slime added to most of our food. I’d rather eat some horse than a hot dog, which may taste great but is as healthy for you as a car tire — Joe H.
