Wow, talk about timely. I'm headed to Chicago this Sunday and just sat at Farm Sanctuary's booth at the Earth Day Fair last Sunday... I just received an e-mail from Farm Sanctuary, which read in part:
Today, in a historic move, the Chicago City Council banned the sale of cruel foie gras within city limits! The passing of this humane proposal, introduced by Alderman Joe Moore, makes Chicago the first city in America to enact such a measure. The vote relays the humane concerns of Illinois citizens who were recently polled by Zogby, revealing an overwhelming 79 percent of whom agree that foie gras production should be banned in the state. This legislation will have repercussions across the country.
HOW COOL IS THAT!!??
Wow. I'm kvelling.
