When Falafel-Loving Politicians Attack

New, 8 comments

2009_03_ross.jpgPerhaps Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi shouldn't advertise how long it takes for him to come up with his anti-foie gras brainstorms, especially after the Chicago ban was repealed because it became a "laughingstock": "'Why not get ahead of the curve in San Francisco and spotlight the fact that it's extremely cruel and inhumane to be offering foie gras?' [Mirikarimi] said, noting he was munching on veggie, yet delicious falafel as we talked on the phone ... 'I'll be honest with you -- we don't put that much time into this. We craft these within minutes.'" Ladies and gentlemen, your San Francisco supervisors! [City Insider, photo]
