Fast Food Justin

I just started reading the book Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosser. Really, I've only read the foreword. I have a feeling that this book might just change me for the better. I've looked at fast food as something inevitable, something that Americans can't get around, something that I can't get around.

I feel that it's easy to see the fast food industry as an incredible accomplishment born from the Post World War II world that wanted suburbs, cars, heart disease, fast food, and diabetes, all in no particular order.

Personally, the name of this blog says it all: The Suburbs are Killing Us. I don't necessarily believe that the fast food restaurants are really the ones to blame. I blame myself for contributing. I think most people should feel guilty about watching American Idol and contributing to its success. I should feel more guilty for contributing to the success of Survivor.
