An update on the Chicago foie gras ban: Two rabbis have threatened Chiacgo's two Jewish aldermen with the "wrath of God" if they vote to overturn the city-wide ban on the sale of foie gras. Alderman Bernard Stone--who initially voted for the ban, but is now worried about the "credibility of the City Council"--responded to one rabbi's statements:

"[Rabbi Jana Kohl] threatened my Jewish heritage. She obviously doesn't understand that Jews only know chopped liver. They don't know foie gras."

Kohl is the former director of the Simon Wiesenthal Center for Holocaust Studies. Maybe PETA isn't so crazy after all.
