Chicago Lifts Foie Gras Ban

After a short two years, Chicago lifts its ban on foie gras. Here's why.
Mayor Richard Daley had called the ban the "silliest ordinance" the city council ever passed and said it made Chicago "the laughingstock of the nation."
Please. I highly doubt that.
"I thought it was us sticking our nose in something we probably shouldn't have even been in," Alderman Dick Mell told the Chicago Sun-Times newspaper, adding that veal calves and chickens also suffer in confinement.
"There's some cruelty out there, folks."
Really? How nice of you to point it out....and not care.
