The Twogmeister is definitely confused. Which angle to take on Windsor Mann’s March 12th posting (A Matter Of Bad Taste) in the American Spectator?

Should he focus on Mayor Bloomberg’s revolting duplicity in mandating salt reductions for the populace (The National Salt Reduction Initiative) even though the trans-fat gladiator has no such compunctions himself?

“Bloomberg, a mayor for whom the political is personal, hates salt — except when he uses it. Not only does he salt pizza, but he likes his popcorn ‘so salty that it burns others’ lips,’ as the New York Times put it. He even salts saltine crackers.”

Or should the bird-man focus on the Government, at whatever level, being involved in our food choices?

Yes, they say the initiative is “voluntary”, but read the fine print:

“Though the guidelines are officially voluntary, they may not stay that way. ‘If there’s not progress in a few years, we’ll have to consider other options, like legislation,’ the city’s former health commissioner, Thomas R. Frieden, said.

Some lawmakers already are. On March 5, New York State Assemblyman Felix Ortiz, D-Brooklyn, introduced legislation that would ‘prohibit restaurants from using salt when preparing customers’ meals.’ A restaurant would be fined $1,000 each time a chef cooked with salt.”

Twog is no longer unclear. That last paragraph did it. He now realizes that the battle against facial-and-ankle-swelling is the signature cause of our time.

Forget that silly war over there. Or any of the rest of it. If your Fritos aren’t healthy, than what’s the darn point, anyway?

Color our feathered friend happy.
