Fat City, USA

Detroit was declared the fattest city in the country (via Rob) today, taking the title from Houston. Houston city councilwoman Carol Alvarado was magnanimous in defeat, saying “Congratulations, Detroit.” Weirdly, the 5:00 Simpsons rerun on channel 50 (Detroit’s UPN affiliate) was Sweets & Sour Marge. The one sentence TiVo synopsis is “When Springfield gets the name ‘fattest town on Earth,’ Marge puts the family on a diet.” That can’t be a coincidence, can it? Did anyone outside of the Detroit area see the same episode today?
