No child drivers seen in McDonald’s takeout line

Don’t think the irony of me defending Ronald McDonald (editorial cartoon, April 11) isn’t noted. However, my qualifications on this subject are irrefutable. There is literally a McDonald’s restaurant at the end of my street.

While I personally eschew any and all fast-food joints, I do periodically avail myself of the services of the convenience store that is adjacent to it. And as I walk through the parking lot, clogged with cars in line for the McDonald’s takeout window, I have yet to see a single child driving a car.
