Please pass the ...BASEBALL BAT!!!

Those merciless killjoys at the Center for Science in the Public Interest (aka "the don't eat that, don't drink that, don't smoke that, stop having fun folks") have decided that the government needs to drop what they're already doing badly and start regulating salt as a food additive. Here's the bit that sells the whole:

A consumer group sued the federal government Thursday, saying that salt is killing tens of thousands of Americans and that regulators have done too little to control salt in food.

"If we could reduce the sodium in processed and restaurant foods by half, we could save about 150,000 lives per year," he said.

And if I was Angelina Jolie's Love Slave, I wouldn't care about much stuff like this, either.
