I found the Aug. 19 article, "Chick-fil-A's Cathy: Bible and business a good mix," encouraging if not profound.

As stated in the article during a Wednesday speech at the Georgia Poultry Improvement Association's 74th annual meeting, Cathy said: "And I see absolutely no conflict between biblical principles and good business practices."

Based upon the success of Chick-fil-A, the mingling of Bible principles and good business practices should be foremost in the plans of any aspiring entrepreneur.

However, I am laying odds that unless Cathy has an ironclad legal provision that prevents such, within six months after his demise Chick-fil-A will be serving customers on Sunday.
