Fly on the Wall 

AK-47s, fried chicken, and the KKK

Chicken Hunters
We've all heard the old saying, "The family that takes an assault rifle to Jack Pirtle's together, goes to jail together." And no father-and-son team exemplifies this old saw better than Antonius Hart Sr. and Antonius Hart Jr., who placed an order at Jack Pirtle's last week and drove away, only to return minutes later with a complaint that some of their chicken was missing, some additional requests, and an effing AK-47.

According to a report in The Commercial Appeal, the father and son weren't happy with an employee's offer to merely replace the missing chicken and brought out the gun to suggest a certain seriousness about the request for additional pieces. Both men were arrested.

Verbatim
"Peace is priceless," according to a prepared statement by Mayor A C Wharton as quoted in a Memphis Daily News article breaking down the $175,585 cost of security measures taken during the recent Ku Klux Klan rally. The article considered the price of the police presence and the chain-link fence used to separate the 61 Klansmen who participated in the march from the significantly larger crowd that showed up to watch. The ridiculous demonstration can also be understood as costing the city just a hair under $2,878 per hood.

Chicken Hunters II
While we're on the topic of drive-through fried chicken, the KFC on Union Avenue has been advertising this special, which doesn't seem like that much of a bargain really.
