Story on Michael Panter and Foie Gras

Assemblyman Panter gets his day in the sun:

Assemblyman Michael Panter said he plans to introduce the bill next week because the production of foie gras is a “barbaric practice that has no place in any civilized society.” The legislation also would prohibit the distribution of the fattened fowl livers from New Jersey or into the state.

“Barbaric practice that has no place in civilized society”? Apparently Mr. Panter has been taking hyperbole lessons.
