Man of the Year

I'm a few days late on this, but this guy deserves props.
CHICAGO - 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.

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.

Awesome. He deserves the press - and increassed business - he's getting. I only wish that he had refused to pay the fine. Then the leftie-do-gooder-public-health-fascists would have seen the violence inherent in their system when government goons showed up to put him in jail for serving duck liver.
