If same store sales in the USA rose 0.7 percent and just 0.2 percent in Europe,
and fell 1.4 percent in the Asia/Pacific, Middle East and Africa regions, how do
they get to an average increase of 0.9 percent? Don't you have to have some
increases above 0.9 percent to average with all those reports under 0.9?
Apparently the people in South America, Africa and Australia ate a lot of
McDonald's food to offset the weakness in their business in the more
developed part of the world.
