Christie's heading out of town for a few days, which means it's going to be just you and me for a while. Who else, I wonder, will appreciate this story from the Chicago Tribune? Chicago, you might have heard, banned foie gras. The ban took effect yesterday, and pretty much every restaurant in Chicago added foie gras to its menu out of protest. They mentioned foie gras pizza, but no word on foie gras Chicago dogs.
So they try to ban it, and the end result is that more people have tried it than ever would have if they just left well enough alone.
