Ahhhh, to immerse oneself in the snarky condescension of Slate's registered posters ... a beautiful start to a Sunday morning.
Additionally, the banner ad for Reverend Al's show was super.

I just love the h8rs argument that boils down to "but, but, but . . . MCDONALD'S!1!11!!11!!!!" [Same as those who hate Walmart or pretty much any other thing enjoyed/used by millions and millions of middle and lower class types.]
I rarely eat in any fast food joints any more, but I don't see why I should castigate either those who do or the enterprises that run them. I eat what I like and can afford and I expect others do the same.
I suppose the feeling of smug superiority one can get from doing that is its own reward. I always see, in my mind's eye, those who do in Puritan outfits with grim, down-turned lips. Thankfully they don't yet have the powers of Torquemada [although I suspect way too many would like to have that power and to use it.]
