John Stossel goes after another nanny state activity. An excerpt:
The motto at the popular Heart Attack Grill in Tempe, Ariz., is: "Taste ... worth dying for!" That's because it serves only artery-clogging food like big hamburgers (the biggest is called the "Quadruple Bypass") and "Flatliner Fries," which are boiled in lard. (LINK: http://www.heartattackgrill.com/) The restaurant's website says: "Insane political correctness stands as a barrier between the average man and his pursuit of happiness."
I guess that's why they refuse to sell diet soda or "diet" anything.
And, oh, yes, the waitresses wear sexy costumes.
But this is not what earned the Heart Attack Grill a threatening letter from Arizona's attorney general. What upset the government was that the Heart Attack Grill waitresses call themselves "nurses." The waitresses dress like nurses -- although in some cases like nurses you'd see only in an X-rated movie. After customers eat the fatty food, they can ask their "nurse" to wheel them out to their car in a wheelchair -- just like at the hospital.
