The Trans Fat War Turns Childish.

It says "By Healthy Girl" in the lower right corner, but I believe this flyer—and several more, including one that said "Hydrogenated Oils = Hydrogen Bomb"—may have been put up by NYC's control freak Health Commissioner, Dr. Cry Baby Thomas Frieden.
In a New York piece last week, a former aid to the "health czar" was quoted as saying, "Whenever (Cry Baby) sees anybody smoking in New York City, he considers it his fault." There you have it cig smokers: It's his fault. Sue his social engineering ass. As Audrey Silk, founder of NYC CLASH (Citizens Lobbying Against Smoker Harassment) says about his bans, "(Cry Baby's) approach to public health shows contempt for the public..."
(note: flyers spotted in 2 downtown spots: these were on windows of the abandoned store on the southeast corner of Lafayette & Prince.)

2. The Comedy of the NYC Office of Emergency Management.
3. The MTA. Very Anal.
4. 16 million eyes...

Oh how I long for the days of squeegee men, stolen car radios and three-dollar crack whores.

We live in a fuckin' hardcore police state that's wrapped itself in a disingenuous, yet flaky phylo dough of nationalism, consumerism, celebrity and fear-mongering.

(Trans fat free phylo, of course).

i still find it amusing that the man fighting trans fat has the last name of frieden. has anyone started referring to him with clever nicknames like "deep frieden" or "french frieden"?

Trans Fat can blind you?!

- or, more seriously, as befits the gravity of the subject -

Trans Fat can blind you!

Wow. As a drinking, smoking, burger-eating Dept. of Health employee, I just want to say we're not all nuts...though there is a poster in the hallway that says "When an employee gains weight, the whole company carries it." Makes you feel like singing.

>>"When an employee gains weight, the whole company carries it."

that line takes on different meanings for pregnant employees.
