Atlanta food news

Posted By on Fri, Nov 26, 2010 at 4:56 PM

Of 15 major American airports, which has the unhealthiest food? It's Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport in D.C. And who has the next unhealthiest? Yep, our own Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Check out the findings on the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine's website....

Yet another profile of Chick-Fil-A and its founder, Samuel Truett Cathy, has been posted on Minyanville, an investment site. It pays the usual homage to Cathy for "honoring God" by closing on Sundays, but it also notes that he's angered some pro-choice and gay people:

"I was not so committed to financial success that I was willing to abandon my principles and priorities. One of the most visible examples of this is our decision to close on Sunday. Our decision to close on Sunday was our way of honoring God and of directing our attention to things that mattered more than our business.”

But Chick-fil-A has also angered a segment of the fast food nation, drawing criticism for giving financial support to Focus on the Family, a vehemently anti-gay rights and anti-choice organization. A Facebook protest group urges people to boycott the franchise for its alleged homophobic leanings....

Huh? Reuters reports that a 375-lb. Mexican-style wrestler, Christopher Long (known as "Solid"), was shot and killed at a local strip club where he worked as a bouncer. Reuters closes its story with a wrestling website quote: "When Solid is down he turns to food for comfort and is often seen enjoying his favorite snack, jelly doughnuts." Thanks for sharing....(The AJC reports that Long's accused killer has been arrested. The AJC neglects mentioning Long's diet.)
