McDonald's CEO fired over inappropriate relationship

CEO Steve Easterbrook has been fired from McDonald's over what appears to be an inappropriate personal relationship with a subordinate. Personal issues aside, it seems his tenure as CEO hasn't exactly been successful, with seven straight quarters of declining sales.

McDonald's has become boring over the past few years. This includes the food and the new decor that corporate is forcing on the individual restaurants.

The forced remodeling of classic McDonald's locations has destroyed some very classic and historic locations. What makes McDonald's appeal to people is in part memories of the good old days. There is just something special about the old classic McDonald's architecture that people hold dear. The newest decor is ugly.

The new food items seem to be rehashes of old food promotions. They keep coming out with new flavors of chicken tenders and market it as something revolutionary. The only thing they changed is the sauce.

Perhaps a new CEO will bring some new life to the company.

They are coming out with some retro Happy Meal toys in a few days. I am eager to see if these are the real thing or some cheap imitations.
