ALMOST LOVIN' IT -- Hoping for a trend, McDonald's has launched their first totally vegetarian restaurant in Mumbai. Managers are making a gallant effort to create the same McDonald's experience for the vegan crowd, but it's been rough going. How can they ever expect to match the "Billions Sold" sign with menu items like "Tofu McNuggets," "Eggplant McMuffins" and super-sized "French Fried Asparagus Spears"?
FRIENDLY PERSUASION -- As a new daytime talk show host, Katie Couric plans deliver a variety of hard and soft interviews -- you know, like asking politicians what magazines they read. And then she might mix the hard and soft in the same interview -- like the one she's scheduled to do with Lindsay Lohan on the subject of women's jewelry.
BLUE LIGHT SPECIAL -- Walmart announced that their holiday gift lay-away fee has been reduced from $15 to $5. That's so typical of the country's largest retailer. Ever alert to customers' individual needs, they even did away with the traditional "Back to School" sale and replaced it with the more realistic "Back to Remedial Math and English" sale.
