Californanny State

State Senator Carole Migden (D-SF), a potential San Francisco mayoral candidate, has proposed a bill which will require all chain restaurants, even those with only one California location, to post the caloric count for their food items in "plain view" on menus or menu boards. I've seen these sort of posters in McDonald's and Burger King, usually hidden behind a tall plant, but it seems a bit much to require them on menus. It certainly will suck a little fun out of eating out. Not to mention all that extra eye-rolling from your server while you debate the fat content of the entrees with your dining partners. (Begin looking down your noses at chain restaurants in 3...2...1....)
