When Opportunity Clucks

It seems Chick-fil-A, the Atlanta-based fast-food chain, is expanding into my neck of the woods.  In a column about how we in liberal Seattle have a predilection for boycotting, today's Seattle Times noted that around here Chick-fil-A is best known for its donations to anti-gay groups, not a way to make friends with Seattleites.

One Times reader, though, found the silver lining in Chick-fil-A's move into our area:  "This is awesome news.  I've spent years not eating there from a distance and now I can not eat there locally."
