'Cluckpocalypse'! / 'Romney needs to ...' / Backpack ban?

Saturday, August 4, 2012
3 things for Saturday, Chicago:

'CLUCKPOCALYPSE!' Jon Stewart on the Chick-fil-A political pressure cooker: "You can't outlaw a company with perfectly legal business practices because you find their CEO's views repellent. Not sure which amendment covers that,

but it's probably in the top one." (Guest appearance by Mayor Rahm Emanuel!)
* Stephen Colbert's impassioned plea on behalf of People for the Ethical Treatment of Produce

'ROMNEY NEEDS TO CHANGE ... THE IMPRESSION ... HE CAN'T CHEW GUM AND CHEW GUM AT THE SAME TIME.' Roger Simon: "The press is now being attacked for making too much of Romney’s 'gaffes.' But why should we ignore what actually comes out of a candidate’s mouth when he’s forced to think?"

BACKPACK BAN? Really? Why must fashion so dismiss practicality?

re: Chick-Fil-A. Let 'em build it and let the local market decide whether it should be there or not. Other communities have kept unwanted chain stores out simply by not shopping there and this is no different...walk the walk or shut up about it.
