QUESTION: Why aren't there any healthy eating options for people in this village? We could sure use a vegan place! People need to start living healthier lives and if necessary, village government needs to step in and prevent any more unhealthy eating places from opening here!
ANSWER: Hmmmmm....aside from the possible legal ramifications of "village government" dictating what goes into one's refrigerator, including mine, there are plenty of "healthy" eating options available in this village...
