Chicago Jumps on the Goose-hugger Bandwagon

Don't even get me started on how ridiculous this entire foie gras debate in Chicago has become. They've now banned it outright. What started as a war of words between chefs Charlie Trotter and Rick Tramonte has finished with the Chicago city council banning all sale of foie gras in the city last Wednesday. (In other "where are they now" news, Actress Loretta Swit from MASH showed up a hearing to detail the atrocities ducks and geese go through. I guess there is life after a career.)

The most intelligent sentiment? (From the Chicago Tribune)

Mayor Richard Daley, who has confessed to an occasional foie gras nibble, scoffed at the council's priorities. "We have issues with children being killed," the mayor said.
