I WOULD THAT THIS IS SO
It may be truth but it could be fiction. I do like their burgers and fries though and miss them almost as much as I miss Robertos. Where the governments get off declaring private citizens their enforcement arm escapes me. That doesn't sound much like America and I say that even though they did it with beer and cigarette sales. My favorite always remained the hotel down the street that kept its cigarette vending machine that simply took quarters and never asked for ID decades into the ban on the sale of tobacco to minors. When I would wander over there for a late night purchase when every store in Emeryville was closed, I always recalled the good times when I could tell a long-winded orator on PARKHILL or NAVYRED, "dropped synch, say again".
