“It is wrong to compare fast food with smoking because they are totally different.”

What more is there to say?

He was responding to an essay that claimed fast food and smoking were addictive in similar ways and equally harmful.

He has put an end to all debate.

What I like about it is that it’s definitive, definite, and much more engaged than the riposte so many of my students favor: a simple “I think not.” He has taken the time to explain why he thinks not, and I appreciate that.

Enjoy!
