    why do you consider this any different from any other zoning laws? if you can stop a porn place from building near a church etc and so forth.....

    so why is this different from any other zoning?

    Of course they have the right bones. But if people in S.L.A. like their Micky D's, the food nazis should leave them be. They think that Whole Foods and vegan places will be building there? Not likely.

    o i dont think it has anything to do with food choices as much a zoning....and enforcing a code...they can build with other stores...forming a mini mall etc...just not a stand alone...i think its a move to encourage more businesses and a more diverse shopping base...and from the looks of it..they got plenty of bugers places

    That's not what it says. "due to rising health concerns" "diversify food options". Hey - we've got enough fast food places in my area. I'd love to see more choices. But govt. can't force that. It's just wishful thinking.

    Authentic Mexican food smells like B.O. Don't go near it.

    You'll notice most Mexicans don't eat Taco Bell. They prefer food that smells like Mexican crotch.

    One of my friends owns a very popular Mexican restaurant. She has "real" Mexicans working in the kitchen. And the place doesn't smell like crotch. Just sayin'.

    But I'm wondering if a place like that would be allowed to be built. They have "diversified options" but I'm sure they are as fattening as a cheeseburger.
