Just as we're seeing local restaurants struggle, the superchain, McDonalds, is seeing it's profits rise. I wonder if this means our waste lines are growing proportionally. Another interesting note, on that awful Monday when stocks fell 777 points, Campbell's Soup was the only stock on the S&P index to see a gain. It's a sad situation and there's more reason now to make sure your dinner dollars make into the cash registers at local restaurants. I found this funny video online to help cheer you up. Enjoy heros.
