To my dismay, Oak Parkers can no longer buy morel mushrooms at the Farmers Market. Why have we been deprived of this great delicacy? Apparently the village has enacted a paternalistic regulation prohibiting the sale of "wild mushrooms." Please, reconsider this statute! If you are afraid of being sued, then require posting a disclaimer: "Not responsible for possible consequences of eating mushrooms" or "Eat at your own risk" or "The dullards who run the village cannot recognize a morel among the most distinctive varieties of mushroom!"
The purpose of government is not to take away all choice from the citizenry. Life does not prosper on a diet of Wonder Bread. Give us breathing room!
