Calorie Counts on Restaurant Menus

It seems that calorie counts are coming in spite of predictable industry opposition.

What's ironic about this proposal is its lateness. This should have been standard practice practice for a long time.

I remember when I started working at Mobil Oil headquarters in 1962 on 42nd Street between Lexington and Third, how surprised and pleased I was that they posted calorie counts on the menu board in the employee cafeteria. They were pioneers.

When I moved on to IBM in 1966, I was surprised to see that they did not post calorie counts. When I inquired, nobody knew what I was talking about.
