More To Help

What is it with these people?
The fact is, from a public health perspective, fast food restaurants like Burger King and McDonalds have done far more to help people than harm them. The fat-bottom line: people in America and around the world aren’t dying from malnutrition because places like BK have made food fresh, cheap and simple to prepare. Seriously, wherever you find a fast food restaurant, you’ll find fat kids, but not starving ones. But in this easy age of value-free moralism, experts are more inclined to demonize Ronald McDonald than Robert Mugabe.
Sometimes it seems like the rightwing exists to provide a kind of political candid camera for the rest of the country.
