Best news I've heard in a while

Well, I've been hearing for several months now that beef was up. According to the Department of agriculture, beef prices are the highest ever recorded. The cattle business is cyclical, so I haven't thought a whole lot about it. I assumed that we were just at the top of one of the cycles (actually we are, but it looks like this is a good'un to be on)

What I find interesting about it are the reasons for this...

ok, I can see the ban on Canadian beef being a factor. I can see the small calf crops of the past couple of years being a BIG factor.

But the Atkins diet?

ummm ooook... I've heard stranger things.
