Ricochet.com Editor-in-Chief Jon Gabriel is in for Jim. Join Jon and Greg as they fume over yet another Senate Republican surrender on spending – choosing to support a bill to fund the government through September instead of a short-term bill that would give the incoming GOP House majority much more leverage on how our tax dollars are spent. They also roll their eyes as the Cambridge Dictionary redefines “man” and “woman” to accommodate the transgender agenda. Finally, they react to indicted FTX Founder Sam Bankman-Fried arguing he can’t stay in jail because of his vegan diet and his struggles with Attention Deficit Disorder.

Toad Hall is hosting a Halloween Party for the first time in several years. It was an annual tradition here, until I got bit by a tick in 2011 and went through eight years of chronic and acute illness, during which we only had one Halloween party. Feeling better this year than I have in […]

What Is Chick-Fil-A’s Core Competence?

 

That would be chicken, yes? Finally, a couple of years ago, we got our first Chick-Fil-A here in the Pacific Northwest, and it has met all our expectations. Most stores are busy all day long, with lines at the drive-through and tables filled inside. The employees are as nice and courteous as can be, reflecting the values of the chain’s owners. New stores generate lots of excitement and long lines as soon as they open. And the food is wonderful.

But a story I read today on Fox News indicates that they may be contemplating what I consider a very bad move.  They are considering adding “fake chicken” to their menu.  Why, pray tell, would a restaurant chain that makes the best chicken sandwiches around consider adding “vegan” options?  What would a vegan want at a store that specializes in chicken?

Personally, I don’t think the owners of Chick-Fil-A should potentially damage their brand by trying to appeal to people who don’t want their product in the first place.  Besides, what percentage of vegans are the worst kind of progressive, the ones who try to ban Chick-Fil-A from college campuses?  And the ones who disparage the owners for their Christian beliefs?  If I were the Cathy family, I would drop this bad idea.  Am I totally wrong on this?

Behold the Genius of Vegan Tuna: Whole Foods Trends of 2018

 

Dear eater, are your mushrooms dysfunctional? Do they just lie there on your plate, limply, underperforming? Then we have great news for you! Functional mushrooms are just one of Whole Food’s food trends for 2018. Yes, now your mushrooms can function again!

Well, not your mushrooms. Not the dull, familiar mushrooms you’re used to eating. They’re just edible, not functional – these days, merely functioning as food simply isn’t functioning hard enough. No, we mean mushrooms with names like “reishi, chaga, cordyceps, and lion’s mane”. Which are not a kind of massage, disease, surgical implement, or feline fringe, respectively, though we understand the confusion. Whole Foods explains,

I’m in a mixed marriage. My wife and I both grew up loving animals, but the animals I loved most were stuffed or fried. She’s a pet lover, and now, a vegan. There are two extremes in discussions of animal welfare. Both ultimately reject human exceptionalism. One insists that animals are humans’ equals, if not their betters. The other insists that humans […]
