Fast food nation

This seals it: as evil as Starbucks might be in terms of homogenizing neighborhoods, and that’s pretty darn evil, McDonald’s and the fast/processed food scions for promoting overeating and obesity with an ad budget ($10 billion a year) as big as Detroit’s. (A Coca-Cola Barbie? Wouldn’t that more properly be a Diet Coke Barbie?) However, someone pointed out that my more personal anger at Starbucks probably says more about my social status than my politics.
In other news: “The New Yorker disdains to be a booster, of his own city or of his own culture. That is for the provinces.” Yeah, right.
