Gobble, gobble

Posted By on Tue, Jul 22, 2008 at 1:50 PM

The eat-smart emphasis in recent years, from the Arkansas governor on down, apparently hasn't fully taken hold in Little Rock.

Media Audit, which surveys nationwide about buying habits and local media preferences, says that Little Rock is in the Top 10 when it comes to eating fast food.

Birmingham, Ala., leads the country, with 16.7 percent of those surveyed saying they eat fast food five times or more a week. Nationwide, only about 8.9 percent of adults eat fast food that often.

In the city rankings, Birmingham is followed by Oklahoma City (15.2 percent); San Antonio (15.1), Raleigh-Durham (15.1), Columbia, South Carolina (14.6), Dallas (14.4), Memphis (13.7), Riverside-San Bernardino (13.5), Little Rock (13.4), and Greenville-Spartanburg, South Carolina (13.3).

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
