Here Comes The Haggis

Haggis

A 21-year-old ban is lifted:

The "great chieftan o' the puddin-race" was one of earliest casualties of the BSE [Bovine spongiform encephalopathy] crisis of the 1980s-90s, banned on health grounds by the US authorities in 1989 because they feared its main ingredient ? minced sheep offal ? could prove lethal. [...] "It was a silly ban which meant a lot of people have never tasted the real thing," said Margaret Frost, of the Scottish American Society in Ohio. "We have had to put up with the US version, which is made from beef and is bloody awful."

Massie hails the Obama administration: "At last, real change we can believe in."
