With Chicago’s Mayor Rahm Emanuel making a national issue out of a simple chicken sandwich, I just had to try one for myself.
So I visited a Chick-fil-A for lunch, though I don’t mind telling you I sure was worried. Even biting into a chicken sandwich these days could be considered a thought crime.
But it turned out there are a few Americans plucky enough to eat chicken sandwiches in public. The drive-thru line at the Chick-fil-A in Lombard was clotted with cars, and the parking lot was absolutely jammed. Inside, it was so crowded that strangers sat with strangers to eat their scrumptious sandwiches.
At the counter, a pleasant young man named Bradley asked for my order.
“What will you have, sir?” Bradley said.
Oh, hmm, let’s see. I guess I’ll have the Sodom and Gomorrah Meal, with some Leviticus Sauce on the side.
