More tough times on the Los Angeles set of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution: British chef Jamie Oliver was disappointed by the meager turnout to a publicity stunt he staged in which he dumped a bunch of sand on a school bus to represent the amount of sugar kids consume. It seems only "20 people and one journalist" was a considerably smaller audience than he had in mind. Said Oliver, "L.A. is not on my side. They've got their fingers in their ears -- la, la, la -- they're not having it...I don't want to winge about turnout... but maybe L.A. was a big mistake." Sorry, Jamie.
