There's a great movie about the rise of the McDonald's empire starring Michael Keaton, plus Nick Offerman and B. J. Novak in side roles. Can't remember the name of it, but the short version is those two guys in the picture got screwed.

Screwed by Ray Kroc, Richard Nixon's largest money donor.

I've been to the site of the first one Ray Kroc opened. The replica-museum on that site is in the process of being torn down:

There's a modern functional McDonald's right across the street.

McDonald's Corp. founder Ray Kroc opened his first McDonald's restaurant on April 15, 1955, in Des Plaines, Ill. The original red-and-white tiled building featuring the golden arches was remodeled several times before it was torn down in 1984. A museum replica with modifications stands in its place.

I remember 15 cent burgers, 2 burgers, fries, and a drink for less than a buck.

♫ Those were the days my friend
We thought they'd never end
♪ We'd sing and dance forever and a day
♫ We'd live the life we choose
We'd fight and never lose
♪ For we were young and sure to have our way

And the along came JFK and LBJ, Nixon, and Vietnam.

Not age, location, location, location. The burger chains spread to the civilized states first.

A friend in Texas told me he drove around the Indy track a couple weeks ago and was surprised how little banking there is.

I miss miniskirts, although I never wore one, and probably only 10% of those who did were completely comfortable in them.

Pfft. Apparently I'm sexually interested in everyone, everywhere, including when I'm alone.
