Ronald McDonald on double standards, McDonald's
and Scottish heritage

He's married, has four children and six grandchildren and he lives in Scotland ...
he does NOT wear a red nose, does NOT wear make-up and has only entered a McDonald's store once ... it is of course the REAL Ronald McDonald.

Ronald, aged 61 year's and a retired school teacher, lives in Aberdeen, Scotland. He is a member of one Scotland's biggest clans (the McDonald's) and has been incensed by the double standards McDonald's Corp. has shown with regard to his own heritage and his own name.
