The Trib's Monica Eng has a knack for finding food policy stories that make your blood boil. I hope you didn't miss this one published late Friday afternoon about how the Illinois Department of Agriculture has found a way to shut down independent artisanal ice cream makers for such nefarious offenses as using fresh strawberries instead of processed syrups. Makes Alderman Killjoy look like the Good Humor lady.

Here's Anne Spiselman's 2009 profile of one of these villainous dairy pushers: Kris Swanberg, who just Tweeted that Whole Foods has placed its last orders of Nice Cream.

Of course, this isn't the first time an Illinois Ag inspector has acted like a total jackass.
