Atkins Disapproved


NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg is at it again. This time his target for wrong behavior is the Atkins diet, or more specifically its creator, Robert Atkins. Bloomberg was caught on tape telling a group of firemen that there is no way Atkins died from a slip on an icy sidewalk last year. Bloomberg's implication was that Atkins' diet did him in.

But Atkins' widow is calling Bloomberg on his Brooklyn firehouse bonding/bullshit session. Veronica Atkins is demanding a public apology from Bloomberg. The mayor, of course, says one is not forthcoming as Hizzoner knows everything about everyone. Just ask him.
