“A hospital has banned McDonald’s from sending staff to hand out free burgers and fries on a children’s ward after parents complained.”

The sad thing about this was that it was some parents and one obnoxious-sounding grandmother who complained, smug, self-righteous zealots so wrapped up in their puritan indignation and scientific illiteracy that they would deny a sick child a small treat. They are the sort of ghastly, crabbed individuals who would have told the repentant Scrooge to send the Cratchits broccoli for that famous Christmas meal. It would have been so much better for them, you see, than turkey.
