We Americans are a pretty trusting, gullible sort, and if you’re slick enough, you can talk us into a lot of things.

You are going to have to talk a lot longer, louder and a whole lot smoother, however, before you can convince me that it’s OK to add “pink slime” to my hamburger. The name of the color doesn’t matter, but “slime” just doesn’t sit well when speaking about my food.

It’s pretty disgusting that people we should be able to trust to regulate our food are so money-mad that they’d do this to a trusting public.

From now on, I’ll grind my own hamburger, thank you.
