    Don’t forget about the Keep Food Legal blog:

    Of course, what we’re talking about isn’t food. Not that I support the bans, but the blog is misnamed.

    And it’s kind of a rote approach to the discussion. Yes, it’s an issue of liberty and all that, but there are other elements to the discussion, such as exponential increases in obesity, high blood pressure, heart disease, etc. because of the world’s first ever epidemic of malnutrition out of abundance of volume of “food.” I think the Republican mayor’s approach is wrong, but in all the whining about “food police” I don’t really see much of a discussion about an alternative solution.

    “Hmmm. My name used to appear at the bottom of my posts here.”

    That’s a problem with this theme. No author is listed if you access a post from a direct link rather than the homepage.

    Simply include your name in the text of your post.

    Eric, I too question why you would jump in bed with a group of anonymous bloggers, it seems to be beneath your usual high standards… please reconcider.

    I question why Ernie cares who Eric sleeps with.

    Ernie, as I said on my own blog, I’m responsible for my own posts. As to sleeping with the anonymous bloggers, that may even be a little too kinky for me, but when the lights are out, we’re all anonymous!

    I apologize Eric. I shouldn’t have said it. But, keep one eye open…
