"To the delight of animal lovers and dismay of gourmands," the California state Assembly last week approved a bill that would ban the sale and production of foie gras. Seems like "delight"ful news. But keep reading: "To win support and appease the state's only foie gras producer, Sonoma Foie Gras, Senate President Pro Tem John Burton, D-San Francisco, agreed to delay the force-feeding ban until 2012." Oh...kay. But at least it will go into law, right? "The measure returns to the Senate before heading to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. Although the governor has not said whether he favors the duck dish, Schwarzenegger has poked fun at the bill in interviews about his quest for a part-time Legislature." Oh boy.
