Yum, yum, very good?

In the never-ending battle of fast food franchises, the key strategy is coming up with new sandwiches that appeal to the high fat demand of the American appetite.

The latest research has created the KFC Double Down. Who needs carbs when you can use two deep fried chicken breasts for the bun? And for filling - what red blooded overweight American could resist two pieces of bacon sandwiched between slices of melted pepper-jack and and swiss cheese? Not to be outdone by McDonald's Big Mac, KFC then finishes off the creation with their own "Colonel's Sauce."

They are test marketing this in Rhode Island at a cost of $6.99 with fries and drink.

Estimated calories is over 1200, which is nearly my entire daily caloric intake.

Have you seen the two food movies in town, Food, Inc., at the Art and Julia and Julie (or vice versa, I can't remember the order of their names.) Both are worth seeing. Neither are in my top 10 movies of all time, but a foodie like you should certainly go.

Julie & Julia is on my DVD list. I don't think it would be that much better on the big theater screen.

Re: Food, Inc. -I am not interested in watching left-wing propaganda films bashing businesses that might be producing cheap food for hungry people.

I don't think Food, Inc. is left wing propaganda necessarily. It does make the point that libertarians should agree with that the U.S. government's agricultural program has benefited the food processing companies to the detriment of farmers and consumers. It does that by making the price of corn so cheap that farmers have to raise more and more to make a living and then it gets turned into things like high fructose corn syrup that have contributed to the phenomenal growth in obesity in America.
