Pruden's Cheap Cow Shot

From Wesley Pruden in the Washington Times:
Cows form genuine friendships, and a couple of cows who like a good gossip with their cuds will freeze out another cow they don't like, such as an old bossy who appears to be the bull's fave date. Cows, the Bristol researchers found, can even bear grudges for years, just like a dumped human girlfriend. (Or a Democratic voter who can't get over Al Gore or John Kerry. [or to be fair, a Republican over Ross Perot])
...
Donald Broom, a professor of animal welfare at Cambridge University, says his research has persuaded him that cows can be become excited by solving intellectual challenges. (Larry Summers, please note.)
