The New York Times is reporting this morning that, “The New York City Board of Health voted yesterday to adopt the nationÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s first major municipal ban on the use of all but tiny amounts of artificial trans fats in restaurant cooking, a move that would radically transform the way food is prepared in thousands of restaurants, from McDonaldÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s to fashionable bistros to Chinese take-outs. Some experts said the measure, which is widely opposed by the restaurant industry, would be a model for other cities.”
Boy, I sure am glad that city governments are stepping up to the plate to protect their citizens from trans fats. We should probably just go ahead and make it a federal mandate that all American cities adopt. That is surely what our founding fathers had in mind when they were creating our government. Saving us from the fried turkeys of the world.
Americans really are dumb.
