6583: Exit Big House, Enter Poor House.
Dogging the news in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• Former NFL star Michael Vick was released from prison to attend a bankruptcy hearing next week. A judge required that Vick pay for traveling to the hearing. C’mon, the guy is bankrupt.
• A new El Pollo Loco restaurant in south suburban Chicago was forced to close after being mobbed by patrons responding to a special chicken deal. Police were even called in to direct traffic. Looks like they won’t be going bankrupt anytime soon.
• The Houston Chronicle announced it was laying off 12 percent of its workforce. Should be no problem if the ex-employees open an El Pollo Loco restaurant.
