New York Lawmakers Consider Outlawing Salt

Determined to match Utah in sheer craziness, the New York state assembly has turned its ire toward salt, considering a bill that would prohibit its use in cooking in state restaurants, with a $1,000 fine to slap violators.

The law may not have a great chance of passing once someone sane gets a look at it, and that’s a shame, because as long as salt is legal, pepper and other dehumanizing spices will continue their reign of delicious terror. Change has gotta start somewhere, folks. We don’t want our food tasting good.
