Fat's where it's at

Mayor Urges Oklahoma City To Go On Diet
City Aiming For Loss Of 1 Million Pounds

POSTED: 7:02 am EST January 4, 2008

OKLAHOMA CITY -- The mayor has issued a New Year's challenge to residents of Oklahoma City.

Mick Cornett wants them to shed 1 million pounds by watching what they eat.

It could be difficult, since a spread of cornbread, sausage gravy, chicken fried steak and pecan pie has been designated the official Oklahoma state meal.


As part of the initiative, residents can sign up and track their weight loss on a new Web site, www.thiscityisgoingonadiet.com.

Update: Brian sends this follow-up. "This link is to Whad'Ya Know segment with an interview with the mayor of Oklahoma City that aired this weekend on NPR. You will likely have to sift through the file to hear the interview, but it’s straight from the horse’s mouth."

The link is for RealMedia audio, so you'll need some version of the Real player to listen to it.
