Subject: DawnWatch: Time Magazine protests ban on “Fine Food and Fun” 9/4/06 edition

The September 4 edition of Time Magazine has a brief piece, by Nina Vizcarrondo, headed, “Banned: Fine Food and Fun.” (Notebook, pg 16)

It opens:

“When Chicago’s ban on the sale of foie gras came into force last week, liver lovers revolted. One pizzeria began serving pies topped with the fatty delicacy to protest a law that even Mayor Richard Daley called silly. Chicago isn’t the only place with rules drafted by the Ministry of Loopy Laws. Here are four others.”

Then the piece mentions laws that ban impersonating a minister of religion, pulling things behind bicycles, mismatched suits (in Carmel) and playing games in the street.

The article cries out for letters questioning foie gras as “fine food” and objecting to its ban being lumped in with silly laws. Please send a letter to the editor. Time Magazine takes letters at letters [at] time.com

Two good sources of information are http://www.nofoiegras.org and http://www.stopforcefeeding.com.

Always include your full name, address, and daytime phone number when sending a letter to the editor. Shorter letters are more likely to be published.

My thanks to Teresa D’amico for making sure we saw this.

Yours and the animals’,
