We all know what McDonald's is, but who the $%&# is Daniel Beard?
|Uncle Daniel Carter Beard|
|Aloha. My name is Mr. Hand|
Beard left the area in 1878 and moved to move to New York City where he lived out his days until the age of 90, an age that frequent eaters of Big Macs will likely never see.
I don't think Beard would be "Lovin' It™" to learn that the bridge honoring his legacy derives its nickname from a company that is responsible for the fast food industry as we know it. An industry that peddles a steady diet of fat, corn syrup, and sodium to kids worldwide. However, I'll bet Beard WOULD approve of that stern Mr. Hand who did not allow Spicoli access to that pizza delivered to his classroom.
In conclusion, read "Fast Food Nation" but skip the movie version.
