The Food Police in The Big Apple

It just never ends does it?
Mayor Bloomberg will cram healthy eating down everyone's throat - literally.
He's on a quest to eliminate trans fats from the New Yorker's diet.

First it was the smoking ban,and now it's trans fats.
Doesn't this guy have more pressing issues in New York to deal with?
I can just see it now - the trans fat "speak easies" where you'll have to give a secret password to get in so you can have fried chicken and burgers...

Interesting. And this seems relevant (I don't have the reference, but Thomas Jefferson is supposed to have said it):

"If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny."
