Andrew McGinn grew up in Iowa in a town without a McDonald's, then he somehow decided that moving to Ohio, with its booming economy, would be a good idea. But the town he chose at least has four McDonald's (and even two Burger Kings). An award-winning entertainment reporter and columnist for the Springfield News-Sun, he's also written for USA Today.
