Double Down

Penn of Denn
Let’s see…… Should it be the miners in Chile or the monster in Belleville?  Decisions, decisions, decisions.  Sometimes there are just too many good news stories to pick from.  I know! I will write about the one everyone is talking about. It’s been on the television news, online and in the papers. The commentators have called in experts to weigh in on the topic and there have been passionate opinions on both sides of the issues.
That’s right! The KFC “Double Down.”  If you haven’t seen or read a story about this topic, it is a sandwich sans the bread.  Two deep fried chicken breasts cradle two strips of bacon and two slices of cheese. 
What can be said about a society that makes a major news story out of a chicken sandwich?  What surprised me was the number of people who were willing to express an opinion having never experienced the “Double Down.”  Kind of like the people who have strong, negative opinions about Christianity and the church without any first-hand experience, and that isn’t fair to the sandwich or the church.
So my commitment to you is not to form an opinion about the “Double Down” until I’ve actually tried it.  Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
