      "A nationwide study published by the USDA in 1996 found that
      78.6 percent of the ground beef contained microbes that are
      spread primarily by fecal matter. The medical literature on
      the causes of food poisoning is full of euphemisms and dry
      scientific terms: coliform levels, aerobic plate counts...
      Behind them lies a simple explanation for why eating
      hamburger meat makes you sick: There is shit in the meat."
       ― Eric Schlosser, Fast Food Nation

      South Dakota legislators have passed a new RAW MILK
      standard which will become law today, December 11th, 2013.
      The law puts into effect a new rule which prohibits
      more than 10,000 coliform bacteria per liter of milk.
      These coliform bacteria are appropriately named, as
      they are commonly found teeming within the colon of
      mammals. Such bacteria give cow's milk a distinctively
      comforting bouquet to milk and cheese lovers.
      Coliform bacteria such as E. coli and Salmonella come
      directly from the stinky-brown contents of a cow's colon
      or ass-to-risk. Drinking such bovine discharges can
      become a sickly sentence.
      Colonies of coliform bacteria in milk double their number
      every 20 minutes so that in one hour, 10,000 will become
      80,000. In two hours, 80,000 grow to 640,000. In just
      three hours sitting at room temperature, your liter of
      raw milk might contain more than 2.5 million unwanted
      In less than seven hours, that one-liter milk bottle
      can contain more coliform bacteria than the population
      of humans inhabiting planet Earth.

      "One thing that stands out throughout the entire year was
      that in South Dakota we are much more united than we are
      divided. Now the divided part creates news, but the united
      part is what moves us forward."
       - Mike Rounds (Past S.D. Governor; Current Senate Candidate)
