Mayor Frank Jackson boldly comes out against TV, being fat

Posted By on Fri, Apr 25, 2008 at 5:31 AM

Mayor declares that being fat sucks, so knock it off, would you?
Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson isn’t the most hands-on politician. If you’ve got questions about dirty development deals, minority front companies, or why his brother has such a sweet job at the school district, you’re not likely to get a straight answer. But TV making people fat? That’s a topic he can handle. This week his administration put out a press release announcing the shocking news that “Too Much TV, Obesity is a Problem for Clevelanders.” Apparently, Frankie G. has come to realize that sitting on your ass watching “Gossip Girl” and eating Fritos can make you a porker, and that you should please stop doing it. Thanks, Mr. Mayor. Now, about that foreclosure crisis… -- Lisa Rab
