Lamenting the Slow Pace of NY Gentrification


Nurse Bloomberg knows what's ailing New York: vile, addictive, family-destroying whole milk:

"There are too many New Yorkers without the ability to select healthy foods, because those foods are not on their store shelves," said Mayor Michael Bloomberg last week, announcing the formation of the Food Policy Task Force.

The mayor also announced an expansion of the Healthy Bodegas Initiative, which encourages bodegas in low income neighborhoods to stock low fat milk in addition to whole milk.

There's only one type of person who walks into a bodega and wonders where the watered-down milk is, and his presence pretty much guarantees that Whole Foods will soon have the entire neighborhood awash in soy yogurt and quorn dogs.
