The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is investigating two airports -- San Antonio International and Buffalo Niagara International -- facing religious dsicimination complaints after excluding Chick-fil-a from its premises, Fox News confirmed on Friday.

I like Chick-fil-A and love seeing them succeed. But I can understand why a busy airport might not want them. And it is their long standing practice of closing on Sundays. I respect that and don't have a problem. Except when it comes to limited access areas such as an airport. People often travel on weekends and need to eat. So shutting down one of the few food options in the airport for a busy travel day does not make sense.

Out in the regular world, we just drive a few more blocks to another fast food outlet on Sunday. No problem, so no real harm to the consumer. But that is not the option available for an airport. Yes, there may be other food vendors, but how many? Two, maybe three? This is one very limited case I can see requiring a 7 day a week vendor and that is not Chick-Fil-A.

President Donald Trump questioned Monday a decision by Fox News executives to host a town hall for Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

It does not bother me at all. Fox is the closest thing to a real news source, which means looking at both sides, letting both sides talk about their platform, and so on. And Fox is a business, not a spokesman for conservatives.

Remember, Free Speech is not just what you want to hear. As long as they give space to conservative viewpoints regularly, I think it is okay for them to host "other" views as well.
