Lyons: Fast-food chicken fight lays an egg
The modern gospel depiction of The Last Supper may soon be rewritten with disciples gorging on chicken sandwiches while Jesus Christ holds up a waffle fry and instructs his followers to do so in remembrance of him.
Some will do so today in Crystal Lake as the area’s first Chick-fil-A restaurant opens. Normally, the opening of a fast-food restaurant is celebrated with a grip-and-grin chamber of commerce photo.

The squawking has been deafening. Plenty are to blame for this tempest in a deep fryer, other than innocent chickens who did nothing to deserve their mayonnaise-slathered fate.
