Losing Liberty, One Step at a Time

Well, Philadelphia City Council passed the sucker:

Trans fats would be banned in Philadelphia eateries beginning in September under legislation unanimously approved by City Council Thursday.

City Council passed a bill sponsored by Councilman Juan Ramos 17-0, sending it to Mayor John F. Street. If signed into law, eating establishments would be banned from using oils, shortenings and margarine containing artificial trans fats for frying or in spreads on Sept. 1, and for all other uses the following year.

Or not:

Those who fail to comply would not be fined under the legislation, which Ramos’ office said was being used more as an educational campaign.

Seriously, I couldn’t make this crap up if I tried.
