The DC Mind in Illinois

Same moronic script-reading, different location.

A few years ago, Kris Swanberg, having been laid-off from her job as a Chicago Public School teacher, remembered she received an ice cream maker as a wedding gift. TheChicago mom fished it out of her kitchen cabinet and eventually started a new career.

Today Swanberg’s Nice Cream — on offer at local Whole Foods and farmers markets — is considered a star of Chicago’s rich and beloved artisanal ice cream scene...

She says that a couple of weeks ago a representative from the Illinois Department of Public Health came to Logan Square Kitchen and informed her she’d have to shut down if she did not get something called  "a dairy license."

Nobody in the Chicago 'business affairs' bureaucracy bothered to tell her about a "dairy license."

Nor the $40,000 pasteurizing machine she will have to buy;

Nor the "I dare you" prohibition on using fresh strawberries;

Nor the "I dare you" suggestion that she use some sort of pre-mix ice-cream "stuff" instead of whole sweet cream....

Stick a fork in her.  She's done.
