The Heart Attack Grill

Being retired I go to bed when I want to and get up whenever it happens. However, I set the alarm once a week so I can get up and watch the program Sunday Morning on the giant one-eye HDTV in my bedroom. While I enjoy almost all the stories they air, I really look forward to Bill Geist’s offerings. I think of Bill as sort of a gonzo Charles Kuralt. Since it’s summer they’re playing reruns on Sunday Morning and I got to watch Bill’s visit to the Heart Attack Grill in Tempe, Arizona. I loved it the first time and loved it this morning, too. If you are ambitious, go to youtube and search “Heart Attack Grill” and thenĀ  pick and choose from over 1,000 hits. Even Geraldo Rivera made a trip there, but I love Bill’s best. So, if you don’t have anything better to do for the next five minutes, check it out…

Even the Japanese know about the grill

And that bastion of gastronomy, the French pallet, where ketchup is labeled “sauce Americaine” had their shot at the grill…

But as with everything in life that’s fun there’s some person out there with a defective humor gene, like the Arizona Board of Nursing and Sandy Summers of the Center for NursingĀ  Advocacy.

I bet she’s the kind of person who tells their kids early on that there’s no Santa, Easter Bunny or Tooth Fairy.
