Foie Gras Ban Overturned

Following a landslide council vote, silly Chicago has finally overturned its foie gras ban: "... the ban has been a source of embarrassment for the city and the repeal comes as residents have accused officials of trying to micromanage people’s lives, with talk of prohibiting smoking even outside along the lakefront and eliminating transfats from restaurants. No other American city has prohibited foie gras' sale, but California has passed a law banning it as of 2012." Wait, what was that about micromanagement? [NYT]
