You can have my salt...

...when you pry it from my puffy fingers.

New York Councilman Felix Ortiz wants to ban the use of salt in restaurants. That's right, ban it. And impose a thousand dollar fine for each sprinkle of fleur de sel that garnishes your plate-or shake of salt on your fries.

This is sort of like demanding that restaurants cook without pans or something. (It's okay, I can hold your gyro over the flames with my bare hands!) My only hope, and I know it's a long shot, is that Ortiz has never actually cooked any food himself. Hopefully this bill with go down in flames, but until then, I consider every salt sprinkle an act of defiance.
