A new season of dunning liver?

I had been wondering over the paucity of activity by the anti-foie gras folks since the onset of cold weather and the holidays. Since people tend to buy and eat more foie gras during the holidays, it seemed to me that the incidence of protest against the putative luxury liver product would increase along with consumption. But when the opposite seemed to happen (as evidenced by a drop in frequency of Google News Alerts in my mailbox. Not exactly a scientifically sound sample, but it's all I have to work with.) I was left to scratch my head over the apparent dichotomy.

Well, I have no idea whether or not this portends a turn of the tide in news about anti-foie gras activism. But I just picked up the story of three brave souls (above left) in Baltimore who have taken their revulsion over duck farming to the streets.
