RE: THE COLONEL

A media-type FBvian who has to just report the facts wants to share some comments on The Bowl:

“Commissioner Price once fought the good fight against alcohol sales in lower-income and minority parts of the city. How about these dietary toxins?”

Rod: You hit the nail on the head. Thank you for speaking up about this. It is almost taboo these days to bash the way people eat, and I am sick of it. It’s about time we start holding each other accountable for the flab, not to mention the health problems. I’ve often wondered about the socioeconomics of diet, and recently saw a study stating that most kids in low income families are overweight. Interesting, because in developing nations, the poor are too thin. It’s a shame that eating healthy foods seems to be out of the reach of most low income homes, when it really should not. We would be well served to take the fast food places to task about just where they advertise and to whom, just like we did with the cigarette types.

Ahhhhh, thank you for letting me get that out. As a news anchor, I am not allowed an opinion. This is like therapy.
