Did any of you see tonight's 60 minutes?  They did a story on the fast food
industry and how they target children for advertising trying to get them to
eat this unhealthy food.  They brought out all these health nazis who went
on about the evil corporations and how terrible it is that they're trying
to boost their profits by trying to get kids to eat fast food.  One of
these goofballs accused McDonald's of spiking their french fries to make
them taste better.  The reporter asked him if he's saying McDonald's is
doing the equivalent of what the tobacco companies are accused of - spiking
their cigarettes to make them more addictive.  The health nazi said yes.
