Then there’s the salt insanity. Some ignorant pol (or is that redundant, too?) has proposed banning an element necessary for human survival from all New York restaurant kitchens. Even as pickles are becoming as essential as offal. This is what happens when the ill-informed are empowered to regulate the lives of others. Or is it just that everyone’s a grandstander? If so, the fool should know that no one remembers who was responsible for getting the trans fats out of NYC food. And that guy was on the right side of food science. Only idiocy is forever.
