Many U.S. Cities Losing Battles To Preserve Their Burger Kings

Every once and a while, The Onion still makes me smile. Many U.S. Cities Losing Battles To Preserve Their Burger Kings Quote: In Seattle, volunteer canvassers went door-to-door, collecting signatures to save the Burger King on Rainier Avenue. As a result of their efforts, Mayor Greg Nickels granted the store historic-landmark status.

“There are children alive today who don’t know what a Whaler is,” the mayor said at the signing ceremony. “All their lives, they’ve known only the McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish. If you look into the eyes of such a child, you realize why it’s important that we save our shared Burger King heritage.”
