    Enough to make me go Vegan?


    What do you do when you go through Mc Donald’s and this is what you find?

    Now, I must admit it hasn't been too long since cutting fast food from my diet. With eye-opening films like "Super Size Me", "Food Inc.", and "The Cove" I've become more selective about what I eat and why I eat--but not quite to the point of embracing vegetarianism. After this friend's experience it just might be enough to make me have second thoughts.

    Shannon Pallat Kelley, resident of Cedar Hills, Utah, pulled into the drive-thru of the latest novelty for this small bucolic town, Mc Donald’s. For a US economy slowly climbing out of a recession this fast food joint is a beacon of hope with "golden arches" bringing needed employment and tax revenues to the city.

    Upon receiving her order of a cheeseburger and fries she was alarmed to find, not a burger cut in half, but a burger partially eaten. Upon returning to the establishment the manager corrected the ordering mishap by offering a free meal.

    For me, this expands the definition of fast food. It not only woefully lacks nutrition, but when served so speedily that it is also partially eaten, "fast food" is clearly served with a little too much speed and not enough attention to what is consumer worthy. Fast food nation? Yes, and far too fast.
