supersizeme.jpgA couple of weeks ago, Super Size Me director Morgan Spurlock was given the key to his hometown of Beckley, West Virginia - but, as Spurlock puts it in his blog, not "without lots of crying and whining by this lobbyist in Washington who was soiling himself at the very thought of it." Somehow reading Spurlock's documentary as "a blistering attack against small businesses", Marshall Manson filed a letter of complaint with the Beckley-Raleigh County Chamber of Commerce. "I suspect that in considering Mr. Spurlock for recognition, the Chamber's board considered only that the filmmaker was a Beckley native who had found success." Manson writes. "The Chamber might want to reconsider its choice in light of the statement it will be making if it chooses to tacitly approve Spurlock's irresponsibility and anti-business agenda." Spurlock's response? "It's pretty funny ... and it sounds like he needs a hug."
