11/23/2010: "Left Unsaid"

Letter to the Saskatoon StarPhoenix:

I appreciated Les Macpherson's commentary in today's StarPhoenix about an interview with celebrity chef Jamie Oliver.

The two most objectionable things, however, in Oliver's call for government regulation over our diet are what is left unsaid: First, that we are too dumb to regulate our own diet, and second, that the bureaucrats on Parliament Hill have a moral right to tell us what and how much we are allowed to eat and, further, to fine, arrest, and imprison those who disagree.

Update: Published as "Tough to swallow"
