Wolf and I don’t eat fast food per se, though we do eat what I call “medium food.” Medium food is sit down places like Chili’s which still sells crappy food but we justify it because, well, there’s no drive through. We don’t eat a lot of medium food, I’d say maybe twice a month. Mostly this has to do with our finances, or rather, lack there of.
I advocate for the closure of McNarley’s and other eateries which serve craptastic food but I don’t think it can be done in a vacuum. That is, if fast food joints are closed because of the health risks of the food then I think medium food places should also be closed. I also think all restaurants should serve locally grown foods, in season, from respectful farmers. I do acknowledge this is such a lofty ideal it’s more likely women will have a constitutional right to abortion before this happens.
Accolades should go out to Councilwoman Jan Perry for proposing a moratorium of new fast food joints in Los Angles.
The ordinance proposed by Councilwoman Jan Perry would stop new fast-food restaurants from opening in the area for up to two years while the city establishes a long-term plan to deal with the restaurants that have been linked to health problems.
I have to agree with some of the proponents though.
But some in the restaurant industry criticized the moratorium proposal, which would only permit full-service, sit-down restaurants to open, as misguided.
After all, McNarley’s could open a new joint and make it a sit down only type place or an abundance of Outback Steakhouses may dot the landscape instead of Booger Kings.
Is banning fast food the answer?
