Discovered in Gorman: The children's book San Francisco will probably ban

Behold The Hamburger Hunt, a mercenary and execrable kids' book our Happy Meal-banning neighbors to the north have likely already tossed from their city so fair it costs $6 to drive into.

That's because the book -- the subject of this week's Studies in Crap column on our Style Council blog -- shills hard to get kids to love the Golden Arches that it would make Mac & Me blush.


Gorman, of course, is that speck of a townlike community in the Tejon Pass 60 miles north of Los Angeles. They've got a gas-station, a restaurant, and an antique mall stocked with an impressive collection of old circus books -- and shelf after shelf of hideous ceramic clowns. It's worth a stop sometime when you're braving the I-5.
