do fries go with that stent?

The South is known as the Sun Belt, the Bible Belt and now the Stroke Belt. Our local hospitals post billboards along I-40 to hype their skills at treating heart attacks, strokes and other ailments. Recently I visited a patient in the cardiac unit at one hospital that boasts about its heart care. I walked through the hospital cafeteria and was surprised to see fried chicken, fried ham & cheese sandwiches, chili cheese dogs and several other greasy foods for sale. Around these parts it's almost as if a coronary bypass is considered elective surgery, like a nose job in Beverly Hills.
