I read part of Fast Food Nation when it was excerpted in Rolling Stone in 1998. Our Starbucks has a drive-through, greatly increasing its convenience, thus popularity. In today's Tribune-Herald publisher Jim Wilson writes, "University of Hawaii President Evan Doebelle [sic] still hasn't figured out Hawaii. That was in full evidence last week with his remarks about the university logo flap and the rancor of using a mainland company. His statement 'You know, the local thing is kind of interesting to me, we don't have these conversations in California or Massachusetts or in Florida.' Doebelle [sic] is still not aware of island sensitivities after two years on the job."
