More information on the McDonald’s Makeover. The McD’s in Redstone burned down a while back. I wondered if they might put one of these hoity-toity locations since they’re rebuilding it anyway. Probably not. In fact, it’s probably on the “Why bother?” list.

Speaking of dying of heat: The history of air conditioning.
Walmart is accused of suppressing wages for a particular reason. Does Costco increase prices?
