No Idle Boast

"If Col. Sanders had my recipe, he'd be a five-star general." So says Mr. D, proprietor of The Old Country Store in Lorman, Mississippi, home of the best fried chicken in the country. That sounds like an idle boast, until you bite into Mr. D's chicken. Then you pause, lick your fingers reverently, wipe a tear from your eye, and slowly salute the man who makes the best fried chicken in the nation. So help me God.
