THIN PREMISE AM New York According to today's AM New York ("Manhattan's Largest Circulation Daily"!), delays in New York City subway service can be blamed on skinny women. "These women—many fainting during the morning rush hour due to crash diets—have been a leading cause of subway delays in the past year, according to MTA personnel," reports Chuck Bennett.
Asim Nelson, an MTA emergency medical technician stationed in Grand Central Station, told the paper, "You have women trying to get their bodies tight for the summer and they won't eat.... Not eating for three or four days, you are going to go down. If you don't eat for 12 hours you are going to get weak."
