Sunday in a Red State
"If Jesus reappeared on earth tomorrow it would probably be at Daytona or a Cracker Barrel Restaurant."
-- Punk Wilson, local wiseass

Indeed, Cracker Barrel has to be the most appropriately named restaurant chain in America. The last time I entered one with an out-of-town black friend, nearly all heads turned in unison toward us. My friend took one look at the wall-to-wall porky white faces and said, "Get me back to the fucking car. I can grab a happy meal on the way out of Deliverance."
