As subtle as a flying brick.

Fast Food Apartheid

Fast Food Apartheid:
The Los Angeles City Council has placed a one-year moratorium on the
opening of fast-food restaurants in sections of the city with
low-income residents. The council says it’s meant to encourage healthy
fare in locations that lack ready access to supermarkets and healthy
restaurant. This columnist calls it “fast food apartheid.” We’re
not talking anymore about preaching diet and exercise, disclosing
calorie counts, or restricting sodas in schools. We’re talking about
banning the sale of food to adults. Treating French fries like
cigarettes or liquor.
