Doctor fired over America Dies on Dunkin sign
AP/USA Today, August 14, 2009
Jason Newsom, MD, railed against unhealthy food in his campaign to promote better eating in a town in Florida. Newsom is a 38-year-old former Army doctor who served in Iraq, and when he returned home to Panama City a few years ago to run the Bay County Health Department he started posting sardonic warnings on an electronic sign outside. When he parodied "America Runs on Dunkin'," the doughnut chain's slogan, with: "America Dies on Dunkin," he says he was forced to resign.
