That Ol’ Slippery Slope

So let’s say you’re a councilperson in Los Angeles and you’re planning to ban all quick service restaurants in South L.A. in an effort to fight fat. What about quick service restaurants that serve only healthy food? Tough one. They didn’t contribute any excess calories or fat to the problem. But then what precisely consititutes “healthy food” anyway? And what if the existing burger joints and hot dog stands decided to mend their ways and start serving exclusively healthy food? Would they still be banned? And if so, why? Because they’re fast? Such are the many conundrums in the lives of the nanny state crowd.
