Well, well: the USA gets its first confirmed case of mad-cow disease. Happy Christmas!

My first response is, of course, purely selfish: if BSE breaks out widely in the US population, the FDA might actually come up with a workable test for it in blood and I might lose my honorary-Brit non-blood-donor status. And where would the fun be in that?

Oh, and just to make it even better: there already exists a test for BSE in blood.

I don't know if this test is on the market yet, or how much it would cost to use on every blood donor, but I still feel my protected/excluded status is probably for the chop.
