BarbWire: Oh, boy, New York City’s in the news again today! Michael Bloomberg’s gone, but his mayoral successor, former Sandinista groupie Bill de Blasio (real name, Warren Wilhelm Jr.) is all set to follow in his footsteps. Bloomberg was last heard from trying to ban large sodas. De Blasio is ready to make war on salt.
Starting next month, providing a court order doesn’t stop it, the city will require restaurants, etc., to warn diners of any dish that contains more salt than is recommended by doctors.
Why are they doing this? Well, Wilhelm/de Blasio says it’s to “help New Yorkers make better decisions…”
