Agreed, foi gras = animal cruelty. In general, Europe seems more progressive when it comes to food regulations (for example, in Europe you know whether or not your food has GMOs but California couldn't pass such a law due to the processed food industrial complex pouring money into it) so why do European countries or the EU still allow this abhorrent practice?

Anyway, a question I would like to hear form someone who knows the great cities of Europe as well as Mr. Steeves is what he thinks of San Diego, and does he think SD could ever be a great international destination like Paris or Rome? (don't laugh, I know we have LONG way to go).

What does SD do better? What do we do worse? What would help us grow as a great city?

It would be nice to hear some of that instead of just the best places in Rome to eat gelato.
