Diet promoter and author Dr. Robert C. Atkins remained in critical condition following surgery for severe head injuries he suffered in a fall on an icy sidewalk, his spokesman said. A colleague rushed Atkins, 72, to a hospital after he fell Tuesday in Midtown Manhattan, spokesman Richard Rothstein said. The extent of Atkins' impairment might not be known for a few days, Rothstein said. "There is no change in his condition. That's not a good thing and it's not a bad thing."

Atkins' allies immediately disputed that.

Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, embroiled in a battle over remarks he made about Dr. Robert Atkins, offered the diet guru's widow a low-carb mea culpa -- an invitation to a steak dinner. A spokesman for Veronica Atkins said the invitation had been accepted. Mayoral spokesman Ed Skyler issued a three-sentence statement about the food fight. "While talking to firefighters about the challenges of losing weight, the mayor made a joke which upset Veronica Atkins," Skyler said.
