Much of the media's attention has focused recently on the debate surrounding Chicago's foie gras ban. Most surprising to me in all this is how such a large number of restaurant owners, chefs, and consumers seem to be so devoid of compassion for the animals in question. Spouting pompous phrases concerning their own rights and freedoms, these self-indulgent people appear to possess a seriously distorted sense of priority. Their arguments even take on a sinister aspect when we consider that what's at stake is merely the satisfying of one's appetite for an unnecessary delicacy.
