Food Zoning?

I am certainly not one to promote fast food, but this is just creepy and frightening. You can read about it here.

The short version is that Los Angeles is trying to put a moratorium on new fast food restaurants in poor neighborhoods under the guise of creating better food choices for residents.

I’m all for more and better choices, but progress is not achieved by imposing restrictions.

Why not create a plan that focuses on the positive? Encourage gardening, food coops, and offer some kind of incentive to grocers and other food providers. Maybe take some money out of the Wal-Mart fund for that?
