Yeah - that's nuts. But in a way - we understand.
A ban on new fast-food restaurants in poor Los Angeles neighborhoods has made headlines around the world, but residents say they don't plan to give up their cheeseburgers, fried chicken and tacos anytime soon.
The moratorium, which was passed in July, was intended to fight obesity in low-income communities of America's second-largest city where healthy food is hard to find.

I love to see an old hamburger joint find a new owner.
Jack Sperry knows better than to mess with nearly a century of tradition.
Sperry is the new owner of The Hamburger Wagon, located on the sidewalk across from 12 E. Central Ave. on Miamisburg's Market Square.
"I've been a customer ever since I was a kid," said Sperry, 45, who grew up in Washington Twp. So when the opportunity arose to buy the wagon from previous owners Chad and Michelle Lyons, Sperry seized it.
