Chicken Out

Several years ago, I ventured into the evil heart of the Chick-fil-A empire and wrote a profile of its founder, the sinister S. Truett Cathy. He had just won a major award for his philanthropic agenda, which involves helping children in foster care, providing college scholarships, and other nefarious goals. No wonder the good liberals of Boston and Chicago want nothing to do with him or his company.

But by golly, those peach shakes Chick-fil-A is selling this summer sure are tasty.
