I had to run a few errands today and was listening to the local news station for updates on the snow storm headed our way
In between the weather reports, I heard a report about a fast food restaurant ban near DC. Prince Georges County Maryland, if I heard it right
They are not planning to shut down existing burger and taco joints, but to stop issuing the required building permits needed to build additional stores.
Their reasoning was to help end the obesity problems, and to control trans fat, and a bunch of other worthless none sense
They also reported that other " sit down " restaurants would not be included in the ban, as the members of this highly educated panel said that these " sit downs " were much more healthy than the dollar menu's we are used to today.
The first thing this report made me want to do was grab a Big Mac.
What happened to choice ? Why is it that we cant decide for ourselves what we want to eat ?
I will support my Big Mac, and the occasional Whopper with cheese.
I will continue to praise the dollar menu.
Sometimes we just don't have the time, or the cash to sit back at the Olive Garden, or the Red Lobster.
I do enjoy those places, but sometimes you need a drive-thru
