Mickey D’s on every corner

Have you ever thought that there was a Mickey D’s on every corner of every city in America?  Back in July when we vacation in the mountains of North Carolina, there wasn’t a lot of civilization around, the kind that wee are used to. BUT there was a MacDonalds with Golden Arches and with WIFI.  I went there several times, not to super-size it, but to hook up to the internet.  Below is a picture that has mapped every MacDonalds in the states as a point of light.  In case you get tired counting them, there are over 13,000 points of light. Oh how those arches glow:

No wonder it’s so easy to have it your way.  That’s true unless you live in the Dakotan hamlets of Meadow and Glad Valley.  There, it is 107 miles from the nearest McDonald’s, as the crow flies, and 145 miles by car! You better not be in a McHurry.
