Above The Fold

Did not realize Decatur had so many food truck operators. Sure, it might take money away from local restaurants, but at least the money stays in town with the local food truck operators. Of course, if those food trucks come into Decatur from other places, then an event of this type hurts, more than helps, the local economy.

The food truck challenge was a one day event sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce. It was held last Saturday (looks like you missed it).

Too bad the cash only taco joint is closed

Wouldn't this also be "Below The Fold" since it is the entire front page?

Dear 9:12;

Me personally, I care about quality eating, not about barriers to entry protecting mediocre vendors. Bring the food trucks and lets drive out the under performing restaurants who have skated too long. The good local restaurants will survive competition, the sorry ones won't.

The food truck food was very good. I hope we do it again, and soon.

Competition is a good thing, right? ...unless you suck...

1:53, you are right, of course it didn't. You and I know that when people eat a meal from a visiting food truck, as soon as they finish eating it they then go to a local restaurant and eat a second meal. 9:12 doesn't understand the concept of eating lunch, then eating lunch again. 9:12 is an idiot, he or she thinks people that get a meal from a food truck will skip eating locally for that meal. What a fool.

"...the concept of eating lunch, then eating lunch again"
If anything, they would eat something from more than one of the visiting food trucks. Your normal person doesn't eat a meal, then eat another one right away.

However, I would expect the local economy was helped by those same folks going to other businesses for souvenirs, gifts, fuel, etc. And possibly another meal later in the day.
