Carol Platt Liebau: Putting Judges in the Kitchen

Putting Judges in the Kitchen

Steven Chapman reports that the Center for Science in the Public Interest (put quotes around those last two words) want judges to require Kentucky Fried Chicken to stop cooking with trans-fats.

We're not children. Give us the facts, and let us make our own decisions about what we eat.
