To be filed under “having solved all other problems”:

The Los Angeles City Council is urging all residents to observe “meatless Mondays” from now on.

A resolution adopted on Oct. 24 reads: “Be it resolved, that the Council of the City of Los Angeles hereby declares all Mondays as ‘Meatless Mondays’ in support of comprehensive sustainability efforts as well as to further encourage residents to eat a more varied plant-based diet to protect their health and protect animals.”

Councilwoman Jan Perry, who introduced the resolution, also wants to ban new fast-food restaurants in South Los Angeles.

“While this is a symbolic gesture, it is asking people to think about the food choices they make. Eating less meat can reverse some of our nation’s most common illnesses,” press reports quoted Perry as saying.
[…]
Los Angeles now becomes the largest city to endorse “meatless Mondays.” The Washington, D.C., City Council also has designated “Meat Free Mondays,” San Francisco has designated every Monday as “Veg Day,” and a number of colleges and public schools also have adopted meatless Monday policies.

While the Meatless Monday resolution was approved 14-0, the Council unanimously voted down proposals for Twitless Tuesday, Wacko-less Wednesday, Mind Your Own Business Thursday and Nanny-less Friday.

More:

The Los Angeles Daily News says it doesn’t make Monday meat consumption illegal and police won’t be checking what you brought to work for lunch.

Not yet, anyway. Give it time. It’s inevitable — for the planet. And the children. And the animals.
