What do big greasy cheeseburgers cause? Obesity? Diabetes? Traffic? Wait, hold on a second. One of these doesn’t fit.

In standard practice, a member of the Towson community has decided that it’s time to stop progress. Progress may be the wrong word, because after eating a delicious Five Guys double cheeseburger with small fries, I don’t feel like moving forward. I feel like lying down and sleeping for a week. But that’s not the point. Nancy Pivec is trying to stop all of those burger joints from coming into Towson.

Her reason? Five Guys, and Burger King are going to bring “nMmmmm... Five Guysoise, traffic and trash” to York Road accordig to the Towson Times. What!?!? Maybe if York Road planners were concerned with noise and traffic, they wouldn’t have brought an on ramp to I-695 to Towson’s main drag. But that’s been there for decades. So it’s not like these weren’t worries along York.

And how are fast food joints going to increase trash? York Road is littered (pun intended) with plenty of eateries.

All of this really makes me wonder just how bad people in Towson really think they have it. If the biggest concerns this town has is a thriving major state institution and too many burger joints, then Towson may truly be Baltimore’s Utopia.
