(Here’s the #1 post of 2012 based on both hits and views. Who knew a chicken company could cause such a flap?!)
I like Chick-fil-A. I like their chicken sandwich. I like their chicken noodle soup. I like their salads. I like their shakes. I like their waffle fries. And I really like their sausage biscuit. But not everyone likes Chick-fil-A as much as I do. Critics are crying, “Fowl!”

Tuesday night I was excited to watch the election returns. I tuned-in early to hear the optimistic predictions. I was feeling confident that real change was coming. Perhaps I’ve been in denial. Drinking the “kool aid” that has been in abundant supply. In my stricken state of mind I even filled out a prediction map calling for a big upset victory! Even when things were not looking so good, I was convinced the Karl Rove was right! All would end well.

Friday. A day we anticipate. The end of a work week for many. The last day of school. The beginning of a “week-end’ to have fun. Friday is a time for High School football in the fall.
