retail news in context, analysis with attitude

McDonald’s CEO Jim Skinner said yesterday that company mascot Ronald McDonald is “a force for good,” and will not be retired...despite the fact that some critics say that the clown is an “insidious” force that encourages kids to eat fast food that is not nutritious.
KC's View:
Critics of Ronald McDonald need to get a life. Parents with a backbone have nothing to fear from a clown mascot.
