This is My City
The city issued its first foie gras fine to a hot dog seller of all people, accusing "Hot Doug's" of violating a Chicago ban by lacing its specialty dogs with the duck liver delicacy.No matter how you feel about foie gras, you have to see the irony of a city that has now officially begun fining people for serving the "duck liver delicacy" while passing a resolution calling for the federal government to officially not enforce immigration laws.
Doug Sohn, who runs Hot Doug's "The Sausage Superstore and Encased Meat Emporium," agreed to pay $250 Thursday for the first-time offense.
Sohn had been openly serving foie gras-laced hot dogs since the ordinance took effect in August. He says he knew about the rule — when he got a warning letter from the city, he had it framed and placed on his counter.
Or, to put it another way...
Successful entrepreneurial citizen -- BAD
Illegal alien convicted of Social Security fraud defying deportation order in church -- GOOD
Defies logic, doesn't it?
