Readers outside Louisiana may or may not have heard of the FDA's proposed rule requiring that raw oysters harvested from the Gulf during the summer be treated for a rare (but potentially fatal) bacteria. The oyster industry here is huge, so this was front-page news in the Times-Picayune.

Well, good news: the FDA has decided to back away from the rule after a meeting with our congressional delegation. I may have to go celebrate with some raw oysters.
