In & Out is a fantastic restaurant and McDonald's would do well to emulate some of their menu and practices. That said, McD has not used heat lamps since 1998. Burgers and fries are made fresh and continuously, although they are not "made to order" http://yourquestions.mcdonalds.ca/questions/3239
Customers want fresh, good-tasting food, not dry, tasteless burgers that sit in a drawer Customers would rather have fewer menu options of better quality Cleanliness and quality ingredients matter – pink slime, fabricated chicken, and 14-ingredient French fries are just gross Franchise owners are not happy – they want a more streamlined menu of top-selling items that are easy to make. I certainly agree with points number 2 and 4, but of course, they are the same point. McDonald's does not use fabricated chicken or pink slime http://goo.gl/yUNRU5 http://goo.gl/xRY48Y http://goo.gl/1KM2vG Maybe people think they do because people like the author keep spreading unsubstantiated rumors. McDonald's burgers are good tasting. The ones I get are never dry and they are always made fresh and never sit in a drawer.
The Shake Shack burger is $5.19. A McDonald's cheeseburger is $1.17. Oh, and the Shake Shack also costs about $15 in lost wages standing in line. ;-). The point about limiting menu options is absolutely true. Pareto was right. So many of these guys introduce new stuff and forget the required training of employees and effect on production. Quality suffers. Customers notice.

How To “Fix” The Super Bowl

Actually, Super Bowl 50 will be 5-0. I don't know if they will go back to Roman numerals in 2017 (LI). As it is, it's probably the only time young people are educated in Roman numerals.

"The problem with endorsing same-sex marriage is that it conveys to heterosexuals that mothers and fathers don't really matter." That horse left the barn 20 years ago. Better to focus on legitimacy and personal responsibility than to talk about same sex marriage.

I'm a homer for sure but when I look up and down the Washington Nationals roster I see nothing but hard working gentlemen with maybe a couple of momentary lapses by one 20 year old who seems to have gotten over it. "we may not see their like again -- in their personal dignity and class, as well as their performance on the field. They are throwbacks to an earlier time, in a sports world of spoiled brat showoffs today."
Would you like to go out sometime?

“I work really hard to keep Ventura High School from being a marketplace for all kinds of vendors to come to the campus and reap profit,” So, actually just a lefty, at heart. I wonder if the text book publishers "reap" profit.
