As of tomorrow (7/1/12), it will be legal in the state of California to smoke marijuana (with easily obtainable marijauna cards) but illegal to eat pate (http://eatocracy.cnn.com/2012/05/04/foie-gras-laws-causing-a-flap-with-california-chefs/)! California has legalized marijauna and criminalized foie gras!
A "wasted youth" is always to be preferred over a "youth wasted."
When foie gras is outlawed, only outlaws will eat foie gras! I look forward to reading police reports of midnight raids on Chez Panisse in Berkeley and The French Laundry in Yountville. Will we soon be seeing Alice Waters in Chains, or, at least, handcuffs? These animal-hating, gourmandizing members of the one percent must be brought to heel immediately! Enlightened Californians have once more blazed a trail for the rest of us to follow...like the proverbial lemmings.

First they came for the soda pop
and I didn't speak out because I don't drink soda.
Then they came for the foie gras
and I didn't speak out because I don't eat foie gras.
Then they came for (your favorite food or drink here)
And there was nothing left to eat but rice cakes and water.
Call me a reactionary, but Commander Kelly still thinks that a Chateau d'Yqem pairs better with foie gras than Maui Wowie.
The next innovation from California will, no doubt, be..."medical foie gras".
