"And A Little Bit of Chicken Fried ..."

August 3, 2012 - Joselyn King
I like chicken sandwiches -- and waffle fries. But sometimes I'd like them on a Sunday, along with some homemade icecream and sweet ice tea.

I like food from Chick-fil-A, though I've also questioned the company's business decision of being closed on Sundays.

And I always wondered why there wasn't one in the Ohio Valley. A grilled Chick-fil-A sandwich is generally said to be among the more healthy fastfood offerings.

You also can't argue with a cow holding a sign that tells you to "Eat Mor Chikin'.' Cute advertising, even if it is a sign of illiteracy.

So just why did Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy -- a restauranteur, mind you -- decide to sound off on a political/religious issue such as advocating the traditional definition of marriage.

What's that have to do with chicken? Rhetoric is an ingredient that's just not needed.

And while were at it ... Ben and Jerry (proponents of gay marriage) should just make ice cream, George Clooney should just act (though avoid Batman sequels) and the conservative Ted Nugent should just rock out.

Wouldn't it be wonderful to just enjoy our food and music without added connotations?

Just a suggestion, though. If Chick-fil-A really wants to be "pro-family," why don't they try reducing the overall price of their items -- which tend to cost more than at other fast food restaurants. Maybe then families could partake.
