In the course of the chain's recent years, french fries were made from scratch every day. Their Russet Burbank potatoes were peeled, cut, and fried in McDonald's restaurants. As McDonald’s continued to expand across the nation, in the mid-1960s, it needed to compress employment costs, diminish the number of corporations they bought from, and guarantee that its fries tasted indistinguishable at every store within the chain.

As I look across the glassy water I see the gleaming reflection of the lighthouse. Next to the lighthouse, a man sits as if he was a statue.
