Saturday Night Live Redux: No Fat on My Cheeseburger

Published September 27, 2007

In the withering over-regulated urban environment, nothing reassures us more than knowing our city fathers are so concerned about our health that they are willing to legislate our personal diets (“Government Fighting To Get Between You And Your Cheeseburger,” September 12).

Obesity can never be separated from individuals’ personal food choices, and government intrusion upon lifestyle choice will never work. Let’s hope the “city that works,” leaves its “cheeseborger-cheeseborger” hysteria on re-runs of Saturday Night Live and not in the city council.
