They may be too unhealthy for regular New Yorkers to eat, but not so for Mayor Michael Bloomberg, apparently.
After gaining national media attention for spearheading an almost total ban on trans fats in city restaurants, Bloomberg was photographed in this month's issue of Wired magazine munching on those very same dangerous fats.
Mayor's munchies trump city policy
The photo, which accompanies a short Q&A about technology and politics, features Bloomberg at his City Hall desk, looking thoughtful and serious. Meanwhile, his right hand seems almost absent-mindedly pulling a Cheez-It out of a single-serving bag of the crackers.
The reader can only assume that the baked snack cracker is headed for the mayor's mouth, and along with it some of the half-gram of trans fat found in every serving of Cheez-Its.
