Salt of the earth

The wonderful Walter Williams ponders the government's war on salt.

There are big reasons why I have to watch my salt intake, but I was never a sweets-eater. I always liked the tart and the salty. So sometimes, when I'm doing particularly well, I like to indulge, just to maintain my quality of life as opposed to a quantity of boredom. The idea that these decisions (MY decisions) should be made by some rubber-stamping overpaid bureaucrat in Washington is absolutely abhorrent.

Ditto to RebeccaH. I add that it might be beneficial for food manufacturers, and perhaps, restaurants to offer real low salt items. Real low salt items, not phoney items like they did with low fat foods.
