    When McDonalds buys this crappy place for a drive-thru we’re moving to a chateau in panda country. Hooray for state capitalism!

    Could you just imagine if you ever wanted to sell it? A home with your own rotunda!

    Their principles are great, but the practicalities need some work.

    My guess is that they will regret this decision as soon as the road opens to traffic. The article describes the owners as “elderly” – I wonder what their kids think about this?
