The New York Times continues the series of random editorials with their take on my "Damn McDonald's for creating so many fast food nations!" rant.
Eating a great deal less than all you can eat is a very good idea in terms of health and life expectancy. And yet the basis of America's eating habits is that if the food isn't as good as it should be, more of it will make it better. Thus, America's waistline.
Eating food is just one of many human activities where this logic applies. Try it; it's like a mad lib. Just replace "eating" and "food" in the sentences above. Almost anything works, but some choices are clearly better than others.
What's the first thing that comes to mind?
