When Falafel-Loving Politicians Attack



    Not Getting Enough Sleep? What’s Your Excuse?
    San Francisco Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi loves his falafel.

    Perhaps Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi shouldn't advertise how long it takes for him to come up with his anti-foie gras brainstorms, especially after the Chicago ban was repealed because it became a "laughingstock": "'Why not get ahead of the curve in San Francisco and spotlight the fact that it's extremely cruel and inhumane to be offering foie gras?'

    [Mirikarimi] said, noting he was munching on veggie, yet delicious falafel as we talked on the phone ... 'I'll be honest with you -- we don't put that much time into this. We craft these within minutes.'" Ladies and gentlemen, your San Francisco supervisors!
