I could be wrong...

... but I have this sense that only in America could the culture wars be waged, albeit indirectly, over fried chicken sandwiches. I've never eaten at a Chick-fil-A, but homophobia aside, I must say that their on-line menu is not very encouraging: breakfast looks the same as dinner, and everything is a shade of gray, at least on my computer. The best fried chicken I've ever had is cooked by Thomas Keller at Ad Hoc. The price is probably more in the Mitt Romney range than the typical Chick-fil-A customer would feel comfortable with, but it's good for a splurge, and a bargain by Yountville CA standards. And though Keller may be a snob, I doubt he's a bigot.
