Good news. It's one step forward. The rest of the country need to ban it too.

Shark Fin Soup is not a delicacy to be served at Official Government Banquets.
It requires the common oriental palette. While those of the Asian persuasion may
savor the flavor, Foreign dignitaries may find Shark Fin Soup indecorous.
Thank you for posting Kelly.
