Wine-Swilling BoBo Blogger Rips Off Dumpster Divers' Design

Mark Bittman, the rich cookbook author who writes a column and the "Bitten" blog for the New York Times, appears to have ripped off his blog's logo from Food Not Bombs, the hippie/ punk/ anarchist/ lefty activist group dedicated to feeding the homeless for free and rescuing food from dumpsters. Evidence that Bittman is not in fact a dedicated member of FNB: his latest blog entry bemoans the ordeal of his recent trip to Paris, where he was forced to eat at a "sad" Vietnamese restaurant that pre-made its crepes. Quel horreur! FNB's style would be to pull the leftover crepes out of the garbage and mix them up into some sort of vegan stew, served in a park while yelling at the police. Photographic evidence of the logos after the jump.
