Thought you'd never miss me till I got a trans fat-free city address
Trans fats are getting fried - to death.

The Board of Health yesterday unanimously passed a new rule banning trans-fat cooking oils and shortenings from all prepared foods in the city's 24,000 restaurants over the next 18 months - making the Big Apple the first municipality in the nation to kick the trans-fat habit.

The ban was part of Mayor Bloomberg's sizzling one-two health punch that hit the restaurant industry.

A second measure approved by the city requires fast-food restaurants to prominently list the calorie content of food items on menu boards.

The trans-fat prohibition goes into effect July 1, 2007, for trans-fat oils used in frying chickens and spreads, for example. Fines won't kick in until Oct. 1.

Eateries that cook deep-fried dough and baked goods - such as donuts, pastries and cakes - will have to discard trans fat from their recipes by July 1, 2008. Fines won't be issued until Oct. 1.

Health Commissioner Thomas Frieden said Gotham will now have the "safest food" in the nation, as well as the best-tasting - although critics worried it could drive the price up for consumers.

Bloomberg - pinhead voodoo doll available here - really is beyond loathing at this point. If you tried to design a politician who perfectly embodies the worst elements of a Democrat and a Republican you'd pretty much end up with someone who looked like him, but with Jim Traficant's hair.

Way back in 1978 sci fi/horror writer (and libertarian) F. Paul Wilson wrote a short story called "Lipidleggin'" about a time when eggs and butter have been banned by the government - the main character is a "lipidlegger" who sells these foods on the black market. Congratulations on winning the Daily Gut's first Nostradamus Award, Mr. Wilson!

Hey, where all my "pro-choice" liberals at? Probably off wearing their goofy "for your own good" liberal hats. Another bad fashion choice.

(By the way, if you haven't read Wilson you're missing out. His official website is here.)
