Aside from the main point of this story - Sonoma Saveurs closing - the verbal gymnastics required to deny the reality of animal activists having an impact on foie gras consumption is entertaining in this article. "In the end, Sonoma Saveurs, the controversial foie gras emporium and restaurant that drew the ire of animal rights activists and was targeted by vandals, didn't close last week because of any organized boycott. The reason was purely economic -- slow business." Whether or not there existed an "organized boycott," the effect is the same as what was achieved: Slowing the business, making the place close. Good riddance.
