North Carolina Bans Rare Burgers

Rare Delight: ILLEGAL in North Carolina

Isn't North Carolina supposed to be one of the sane states that folks migrate to from the North East to flee the "nanny" state?

In a move that makes New York Mayor Michael Blumberg's decision to yank salt shakers off restaurant tables, North Carolina requires all burgers must be cooked to a temprature of 150 degrees. And where's the crisis?  How often have there been eColi casualties in the Tar Heel state?

Does this mean the food Nazis will be patrolling the tailgators and infield barbequers at this week's racing action at Charlotte Motor Speedway?  From Brevard to Buxton, crispie burgers are the law of the land in North Carolina.

Naturally, no one wants a raw burger from McAwful's, Wendy's, or Burger King, but isn't one of the reasons to enjoy a burger at a fancier restaurant to have it cooked to order? What's the point in enjoying a fine 1/2 pound of ground sirloin if it's cooked to a crisp where its classic flavor is burnt right out of it along with all the nice shirt staining juices?

This kind of intrusion into private enterprise and responding to crybaby causes is no way to govern. PETA and all the other tear jerkers be damned!!!

I want a nice big juicy burger with cheddar, hold the catsup, steak fries please!!!
