I sounded off a while back when some political genius in Mississippi introduced a bill that would make it illegal for restaurants to serve fat people. Honest.

Now, Los Angeles wants to ban fast food restaurants from building in South LA, where apparently all the fat people live. As Andrew Casana, a spokesman for the California Restaurant Association said:

“What’s next — security guards at the door saying ‘You’re overweight, you can’t have a cheeseburger’?” Casana said.

Welcome to America. I think I’ll go get some ice cream while I still can.

    As a a food service professional (an oxymoron) who has spent 30 years in the restaurant business cooking it up and serving it to thousands of people I have just this to say:

    When it comes to food, Americans are IDIOTS! They spend half their lives being terrified of the very thing that obsesses so many of them. If we could just relax and enjoy a ‘good’ meal now and then.

    A great and very spiritual take on this is Robert Farrar Capon’s “The Supper of the Lamb” written back in the sixties. Lord save us from overly concerned nutritionists, an under informed public and serious people everywhere.

    Thanks for the reference, Chris … from the horse’s mouth, as it were. :) I’ll check it out.

    I think we’d be a lot better off if Christians were even half as concerned about their spiritual food as they are about their natural food.

    Where is the value in being a grownup if your country won’t let you act like one?
