I support this completely. May I offer the following amendment?

I can fully support this amendment.

I will note that, further, the Caramel Apple Empanada was removed from Taco Bell menus last year.  That our national cuisine has no empanada (or really suitable desert, for that matter) is a disgrace of the highest order.  It is my opinion that the Culture Ministry should immediately undertake a letter-writing campaign to attempt to fix this.
