Re: “Why not a McDonald's on Broughton Street?

It's cheap if you don't count the environmental and health costs (which are more than considerable.) The transportation of these foods, the pollution of the land by cows kept in tiny pens up to their knees in their own manure, the inevitable e. coli infestation of the cows that are fed grass instead of corn (also monumentally increasing the saturated fat content of their meat), the groundwater pollution, and the methane air pollution all make mcdonald's more expensive in the long run. Yeah sure you can get a burger for a dollar, but you get what you pay for. Mono-sodium glutamate, TBHQ, Ammonium, etc. (Not going to bother listing the 38 ingredients) Local organic food cannot compete with the low prices that come from corporate foods. I know someone who drove a meat delivery truck, and they brought food to a dog food factory, and it was rejected due to poor quality. Guess who took it? McDonalds! In the end, it's about responsibility. If you can buy a tv, you can pay an extra dollar to support the local economy and the preservation of our environment.
