I'm Gonna Eat Whatever I'm Gonna Eat!

The city of New York has yet again banned something. First smoking, then trans fat, and now they're banning the tranquil sense of normalacy customers once had when they ate a 60-gram-of-fat/1200-calorie Chipotle Burrito.

Starting on Saturday, health inspectors can slap fines of up to $2,000 on fast-food and casual-dining chains if calorie counts are not displayed on their menus in the same font and format as the name or price of food items.

"I'm going to eat whatever I'm going to eat," said Erika Roberson, 19, leaving an Applebee's restaurant in Brooklyn.

I'm all for it; I'm just doubtful it will actually work.
