Let them eat pig!

Some thoughtful folk planned to distribute free soup to the poor of Strasbourg last week-end: pork soup. Sometimes they distribute ham sandwiches. It just didn't occur to them that this would be unacceptable to Muslims and Jews; not that the needy include such folks.

Alsatians do consume a fair amount of pork in traditional cookery, such as choucroute, sausages, ham hocks; it could have been planned without malice aforethought.

P.S. The city cancelled the permit, and the operation was called off.
