May 13— Joseph Connor's job as a cook at a McDonald's in Hamden, Conn., never materialized, and he thinks he knows why — lookism.

Lookism huh.gif I don't know about this one . I don't believe people should be judged for the way they look , but your front people are your advertising and well maybe it was a factor that had to be assessed.
