Time to pass on fast food

Townsville Bulletin - - Voice Of The North -

JOHN An­der­sen’s col­umn en­ti­tled ‘‘ Junk food guns down the burger’’ pub­lished in the Townsville Bul­letin was a shot in the arm for me be­cause it re­in­forced my stead­fast com­mit­ment over decades past to fast food.

Orig­i­nally t he hum­ble ham­burger gained wide­spread pop­u­lar ac­cep­tance as a nu­tri­tional and healthy snack in Ham­burg, Ger­many. Later un­healthy der i va­tives l ack­ing nu­trit i onal worth were s ol d mostly from fast food fran­chise out­lets.

With ref­er­ence in John’s col­umn to Cafe Russki in Ch­er­nobyl I am per­son­ally as­sured the town­ship of Ch­er­nobyl is open to and wel­comes tourists. Ch­er­nobyl even seems an agree­able, ac­cept­able means of re­lief to es­cape from the tox­i­c­ity and waste of Moscow’s cir­cus and en­vi­rons where to, by air into the heart of the home­land for a while I could be a non­sup­pressed, ham­per-f ree burgher.
