The nanny state remains among us

The city council in South LA passes a one-year ban on the establishment of new fast-food restaurants in the area.

Their definition of fast food? "..."any establishment which dispenses food for consumption on or off the premises, and which has the following characteristics: a limited menu, items prepared in advance or prepared or heated quickly, no table orders and food served in disposable wrapping or containers."

There goes my idea of opening a Salads-to-Go franchise there.
And never mind that McDonalds and other places are offering more and more salads on their menus.
And never mind further what individuals may wish and what choices they may wish to make in the future. The city council knows best when it comes to your health.
The health nazis remain on the prowl. Watch out.
