The absolutely scariest words in the world is some government official saying "We are going to help."

This morning while I was hunting and gathering food in the city, I ran into a food truck. I spoke to the owners of the food truck about the new city of Chicago ordinance on their business.

Chicago passed an ordinance that allows food trucks to prepare meals inside the food truck-which means they can put mustard on a hot dog for you, but the trucks cannot park within 200 feet of a brick and mortar establishment. That includes places like Walgreens.

Do you know how many parking spaces in Chicago’s loop there are that meet that qualification? Five. Cinquo. Cinque....
