    The American Museum of Natural History in NYC has a temporary exhibition on “Chocolate.” The diplay includes the science and history behind the treat. Of course, the statists are aghast that the museum would “endorse” this fattening candy, “just as the New York City school system announced that its vending machines would not sell candy anymore, to help counteract obesity among children.” I give it a month before someone threatens to sue.

    so I guess everything enjoyable now has to come with a disclaimer “don’t do this too much or it will be bad for you”

    These people remind me of the irritating person who says “oh my G-d, I would never eat THAT, it’s soooooooooo horrible for you!” just as you are about to bite into a delicious slice of pizza.

    in other words, people who can’t be happy, and don’t want anyone else to be happy, either.

    haven’t they heard that (in small doses) chocolate is actually fairly good for you? the dark kind (the BEST chocolate, IMHO) is loaded with antioxidants…just like red wine, and tea…which I guess we aren’t supposed to enjoy, either…
