Today's Guardian is full of a horsemeat scandal in the UK ... restaurants using it in their burgers.

I practically lived on horsemeat during my year in Pdx after dropping out of grad school in the sixties. There was a horsemeat market on SE Hawthorne. Reed students had published a horsemeat cookbook. I think it was the protein of choice for the bohemian set. Many a dinner featured Salisbury Mare from the cookbook. I'd eat horsemeat today if I could conveniently get it. Nothing is better in spaghetti sauce.
