WARNING: 2nd Hand Salt

Shake, Baby, Shake

There’s a law in New York City prohibiting the sale of supersized soft drinks. It was passed by a bunch of politicians who know how to live our lives better than we do.  It was preceded by a New York State proposal that, fortunately, did not pass.

A few years back, Assemblyman Felix Ortiz  introduced a bill that would ban “too much” salt in New York restaurants. The shaky hands of violators would be slapped with a $1,000 fine for every salty dish on the menu.

Assemblyman Ortiz is an idiot.

I love salt – I salt ham.  I sometimes fight the deer in the woods for the licks. I’m tempted to salt my cats food.  Do you know that blue and white salt container in the back of one of your kitchen cupboards?  I go through one about every other month – by myself!  And I don’t  want some Brooklyn political hack telling restaurants how much salt to use or give us a lecture on future health care savings in a world without my favorite white crystals.

Felix – don’t like salt?  Order out for some hospital food and shut up.
