Should McDonald’s have been held responsible for child obesity in the lawsuit it recently faced?
Asked at Lawrence Public Library on January 23, 2003
“I think the parents are to blame in that matter, personally. They are the ones that let their kids keep eating it and watched them get fat.”
“No. I think any responsible person should know it’s not healthy. They have to take responsibility for their own health.”
“I think all fast-food restaurants are negligent.”
“Heavens, no. I think we all make decisions about what we buy and what we consume, and we are responsible for those decisions.”
