mmm, horse

the thing is, horse meat tastes better than cow's meat. i'd take qazy over meatballs any day.

i realize the issue is truth in labeling, and i also recognize there's an issue about having chemicals that are injected into race horses entering into the human food system. but that doesn't seem to be where most of the outrage is coming from. instead, much of the story seems to be driven by assumption that horse meat is inherently yucky. i can't help but suspect that some of the people pushing that assumption haven't ever eaten horse.

not that i would wish being stuck in kazakhstan for 8 months in a gut wrenching legal battle on anyone. but at least it made me learn to appreciate food (and drink) made from horses.
