Human Excellence: Sponsored by Big Macs and Gas Guzzlers

"[NBC] still made a nice profit on the [Olympic] Games, helped along by ads for health foods like Coke and McDonald’s fried-chicken sandwiches, and by dozens of ads for gas-guzzling S.U.V.s, the automotive shame of America, whose emissions do their part to melt the snow and ice that make the Winter Olympics possible."

-Nancy Franklin, in the New Yorker
