I spent the last four days on a trip to Texas and back. I spent lots of time eating out. Everywhere I went, from fastfood to gas stations to resteraunts, was crowded with people. And the huge majority of those people were overweight. I wondered if they were hurting financially as much as my own family is. Surely the recession has affected some of them. So, are they spending money they don't have? ordering food they don't need and shouldn't eat? and then I was appalled watching the staff clear the tables... what waste! I wondered if there were hungry people in those towns.
Does anybody else think about these things? Does this bother anyone else? Is there something wrong here?
