Mad Cow Test To Be Scaled Back (?!?!)

The UPI is reporting that the main US BSE testing facility will close:
U.S. agriculture officials are planning to close the mad-cow testing lab at Washington State University in Pullman, despite increasing concerns.

The Seattle Times reports the facility -- one of three slated for closure -- will cease operations March 1. It opened three years ago after the nation's first case of the brain-wasting disease -- bovine spongiform encephalopathy -- was found.
I'm pretty much speechless. What the hell are they thinking?
