Quick Wriet 092111 “McDonald’s at hospital”

This morning I read an article on McDonald’s at children’s hospital on Salon. com http://www.salon.com/life/feature/2011/09/19/poprx_mcdonalds reporting, quote, “Twenty-seven children's hospitals across the U.S. have a McDonald's on site, and there are many more at centers worldwide.” This is the article that one of my students read as “Extensive Reading” assignment. She went to Salon.com, searched for news articles that she’d like to read, picked up one, and summarized it in A4 sized paper. Isn’t that great?
Now let me go back to the point. It sounds reasonable that McDonald’ at children’s hospital s is to be blamed for being harmful, or at least not desirable, for kids patients from a nutritive viewpoint. All may come down to the following remark on the article, quote, “Since McDonald's is the archetypal bad guy in the war against childhood obesity, a hospital location vastly enhances the image of the company and its food.” (I like “the archetypal bad guy in the war against …”, by the way) But I won’t reject the world-famous fast food chain restaurants located in hospital on the account of being unhealthy and to kids and its visitors.
I’m not really sure it’s because that I’m from the generation that McDonald’s was something special as a kid (Its first restaurant was opened in Ginza, Tokyo in 1971), or it’s just that I haven’t realized the seriousness of the childhood obesity in the U.S. and other issues to be considered, but to me, Big Mac, Mc Shake (strawberry is best IMHO), or Apple Pie (my all-time favorite) could comfort or console kids in their sickness. Under the direction of their doctors and with the discretion of adults around them, hospitalized children can have an option to enjoy the food that they’d otherwise eat, I think. It shouldn’t be so bad an idea that hospitals offer a sort of “amusement” for sick kids who’re forced to be away from school and friends, and cannot hang out at McDonald’s with their buddies after school. Or things are not as simple as I’d conceive?
