Cloned Beef Taste Test: Article [moved from General Chowhounding]

LA Times had what I thought was a very entertaining article about a blind taste test of cloned beef done for a group of foodies and others:

(sorry if this was already posted: I did a search and didn't see it

)

Anyway, I found it interesting. I have no problems whatsoever with this technology (and the cattle are actually just offspring of clones). I think people hear "clone" and think of some kind of automaton-like creatures in a sci-fi suspended-animation chamber or something. They're cattle like any other, people! OK, factory farming is pretty horrific just by itself, but let's just say I don't find this any worse.
