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).

Lee. I have one brief observation on his remarks:
