Taco Bell Hoax Upsets Small Alaska Town
LINDA WERTHEIMER, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Linda Wertheimer with sad news for Alaskans craving tacos. The town of Bethel has a population of 6,000, can only be reached by boat or plane and apparently misses its fast food. Flyers posted last week promised a new Taco Bell. Sadly it was what the Anchorage Daily News called an evil hoax. Taco Bell has no plans for Bethel, but there is a store 400 miles away. It's MORNING EDITION.
