Trillion dollar matzos

The New York Times, perhaps fearing calls for a boycott based on the perfidy of the American Jewish community in manipulating American politicians to kill people in the Middle East on the dime of the American taxpayer, is telling us how everybody just loves kosher food. Of course, they are conveniently conflating obvious Jewish 'delicacies' with the entire kosher-certified food supply. I know that calls for an end to the 'kosher tax' are damaged by the fact that they have tended to come from traditional anti-Semites, but isn't it peculiar that one tiny group can impose the entire cost of its irrational eating preferences on the whole population?
