Political Theater of the Absurd

Because shiny, happy New York doesn’t have anything better to worry itself over:

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.

You have got to be fracking kidding me. If it’s too salty, send it back. Otherwise, let the chef do what he does best — and let Felix Ortiz suck eggs.

I’ve come along to Professor Reynolds’ view that it’s time to bring back tar and feathers. And in prodigious quantities.
