2014.06.06 No more cheese boards
For hundreds or thousands of years, people aged cheese in basements, often on wooden boards. The FDA recently decided that this is too dangerous, despite many award winning artisan cheeses being done this way, and no reported cases of a problem. Even the hyper-regulatory Canadians are scratching their heads as they never saw this as an opportunity/problem. Without government who would protect you from liberty and non-problems like this? (NOTE: The FDA got enough back-pressure and public exposure, that they backed down. But there are plenty of cases that didn't get this kind of backlash, so they did not. And the problem is that they tried).
