EDITED TO ADD: Apparently, the Southside Times and/or Wendell Fowler decided to delete the article, Pandering to Diabetics, You Bet written by Wendell Fowler. If you have not read the original article, it is available to read here. Besides not understanding how Facebook works, Wendell doesn’t understand that once you put something out there on the internet, it is there forever. I did not want to change what I originally wrote, but the link to the first article no longer works. As of this edit, the link to the half-baked apology still works. What follows here is my original article:
You killed the ice cream truck!
I am sure everyone has heard about Wendell Fowler’s attack on diabetics eating ice cream at a fundraiser sponsored by the Diabetes Youth Foundation of Indiana. I first read about “the problem” at Mike Hoskin’s blog, The Diabetics Corner Booth. Last weekend, an email went around about an article written by Wendell Fowler in the Southside Times. You can read that article here. A lot of ice cream stuff has been going around blogs and Facebook this week. I guess you can say, the devil made me do it, but when I went grocery shopping today, between the heat and all the ice cream talk, I bought ice cream. I can’t remember the last time I had ice cream and I actually was hungry for it even before all the talk started.
My only regret? I went shopping before I read Wendell Fowler’s so called apology that you can read here. Had I read that, I would have bought some of the half baked ice cream because that is what his apology amounts to. That would have made a much better picture.
