On Memorial Day, we remember our fallen warriors and the ideas they championed.

They may not be open on Sunday, but to their legion of fans, Chick-fil-A, (pronounced chick filet) is a religious experience the rest of the week.
In an interview with Nightline, Dan Cathy, son of company owner S. Truett Cathy, explained his father's “principles before profits.”
"He wanted himself and his employees to spend time with family and worship."
Principles before principal is working just fine, thank you, since the company, which opened in 1986, has over 1,600 locations in 38 U.S. states and an unrivalled record of 34 consecutive years of annual sales increases.
"We Didn't Invent the Chicken, just the Chicken Sandwich," S. Truett Cathy likes to cluck.
He discovered that pressure cooking the chicken in peanut oil allowed for a fast serving time.
The sandwich also comes with two pickles simply because that was the only condiment he had on hand when the sandwich was created.
(There is a rumor going around that their filets are, in fact, injected with pickle juice, but I, for one, don't believe it.)
Merriam–Webster in 1951 was the first to recognize the term, "fast food."
No coincidence that was about the time that MacDonald's "Speedee Service System" was revolutionizing things.
Fast food goes back a ways; the Greeks and Romans had street food stands that sold bread, wine and all sorts of goodies.
You probably didn’t hear “Get your red hot kabobs” outside Olympia stadium and the Colosseum, but something close.
Some say the modern history of fast food in America started in 1912 with the opening of the Automat on 57th Street and 6th Avenue in New York City.
We do know that White Castle, founded in 1916 in Wichita, Kansas, is usually credited with opening the first fast food outlet, selling hamburgers for five cents apiece
Getting back to Chick-fil-A, "EAT MOR CHIKIN" is the chain's most prominent slogan, often seen in ads featuring sign-wearing cows.
(Of course sign-wearing chickens might have different ideas.)
Today, consumers are lining up to try Chick-fil-A's new spicy chicken sandwich, which they'll be able to order on-line.
Except, of course, on Sunday.
With boneless breast meat breaded by hand and cooked fresh, an array of healthy side dishes and memorable service, Chick-fil-A is liable to give fast food a good name.
