Fast Food Nation

I read Fast Food Nation on my flight to Phoenix, and it was pretty disturbing, especially the section on the meat packing industry. It also had a pretty damning account of the fast food industry and it’s marketing practices towards kids.

Even knowing all this, I still ate at Wendy’s tonight. And it seemed like any other Wendy’s that I’ve ever been to, with just a slightly different color scheme. The most disturbing part of it was just that there were so many kids there, eating the fries, drinking soda – not exactly eating well.
