Letter to the Editor: Foie gras a vile practice, should not be promoted

Your article and#8220;Announcing foie gras dinnersand#8221; is pathetic. We should all eat as much foie gras as possible before it is banned? Yeah, we should all try to get in as much cruelty and torture as possible before this vile practice is prohibited? Great advice there!

Do you think force feeding ducks and geese causing them pain, suffering and disease for our pleasure is okay? Why do you think it is being banned? Get with the program, do your research and donand#8217;t promote these cruel and out-dated practices. Foie gras is becoming a thing of the past as we as a culture evolve and move ahead.

You and The Renegade Grub Society and#8220;Save the Foie Grasand#8221; chefs Scott and Heather Boyd should be ashamed of yourselves!
