My weekend column muses on the use of state power to punish dissent from party orthodoxy — i.e., Boston and Chicago Democrats promising their base a Chick-fil-A executive in every pot. Shortly after I filed the column came this news:
We are saddened to report the news to you that our dear friend Don Perry, vice president of public relations, passed away suddenly this morning.
Don was a member of our Chick-fil-A family for nearly 29 years. For many of you in the media, he was the spokesperson for Chick-fil-A. He was a well-respected and well-liked media executive in the Atlanta and University of Georgia communities, and we will all miss him.
