As Crocker over at Behind Blue Lines has blogged, the regulatory state has gotten out of hand.  Now the Food and Drug Administration is proposing to go after artisan cheesemakers who use raw milk.  More specifically, they want to extend the 60 day aging period in order to kill more harmful bacteria.  Gee, when is this quest to make the world 100 percent safe going to end?  What’s worse, the consumer will lose as well by having fewer cheeses available to choose from.  I love cheese . . . me thinks I will take my chances 🙂
