Cracker Barrel: We screwed up big time | Fox News

“We were flat out wrong.”

That’s the message Cracker Barrel is sending to enraged customers after the restaurant chain removed Duck Dynasty items from its stores over fears it might offend people.

I suspect that lawyers were heavily involved in this decision.

It is amazing how often the right thing to do turns out to have been nothing.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. It’s amazing how often lawyers are just plain wrong in all but the most narrow legal sense. (And often enough in that sense as well.) Which is fine because company lawyers are supposed to give advice coming from one very cautious perspective, but too often the corporate bosses give too much weight to the lawyer’s advice and end up looking like assholes.
