What a chicken

    The founder of Chick-fil-A is a big softie.

    NEW SMYRNA BEACH -- Writing "I will not vandalize other people's property" 1,000 times and a ban on television and video games for six months may not be conventional punishments for a vandalism spree, but Chick-fil-A restaurant founder S. Truett Cathy has never followed convention.

    Those were two of four requirements dictated by the 87-year-old entrepreneur as an alternative to court prosecution for three pre-teen girls who entered and trashed the private residence known as the Chick-fil-A Lodge in New Smyrna Beach about two weeks ago.

    Note that he also asked that they read a book and write a book report to him for 13 straight weeks. That might be the best part.

    Good for him. That guy really does do things his way. Makes a good chicken sandwich, too.

    Isn't Chick-Fil-A owned by one of the religious groups? I don't think any of the franchises are allowed to be open on Sundays.

    No, not a "religious group."

    Truett Cathey is a Christian and never opened it on Sunday, and still doesn't.

    Good for him. Good chicken soup, too.

    Founder S. Truett Cathy, the man in the story, is still the chairman of Chick-fil-a.

    That threw me off the first time I was in ATL. I wanted to check out what the big deal about the Chik-Fil-A was and they were closed. Imagine McDonalds or BK closing so employees can spend time with their family? OH and the commercials with the cows saying "eat more chicken" are great.

    Their breakfast biscuits, which McDonald's just copied, are the standard by which all fast food breakfasts should be measured.

    The first time I noticed it was in a mall down south when it was the only place closed. I just assumed it had gone out of business.

    I assume that Mickey D's version is like all photocopies --- not as good as the original.
