No Salt For YOU!

Ah, Spring! When a guvmint busybody's mind turns to more regulatory cowbell:

MYFOXNY.COM - Some New York City chefs and restaurant owners are taking aim at a bill introduced in the New York Legislature that, if passed, would ban the use of salt in restaurant cooking.

"No owner or operator of a restaurant in this state shall use salt in any form in the preparation of any food for consumption by customers of such restaurant, including food prepared to be consumed on the premises of such restaurant or off of such premises," the bill, A. 10129 , states in part.

The legislation, which Assemblyman Felix Ortiz , D-Brooklyn, introduced on March 5, would fine restaurants $1,000 for each violation.

I understand that a couple of other bills are in the works, including:

- Mandatory replacement of all current dessert menu items with beets;

- A strict "forty chews per swallow" rule; and

- A new "Take a mint? Lose a finger!" policy.

dihydrogen monoxide.

Do it for the children!
