RED HEN: I'd eat there. And I'd have served Sarah, too. But I might have preferred a foot-long.

Seems like ancient news now, but I did write a column this week about Sarah Huckabee Sandersdisinvitation from a Virginia restaurant. Bottom line: I’d have served her. Her disagreeable dad, too. But …..

The buts include unavoidable recollections of not just uncivil, but arguably unconstitutional actions by governors in Arkansas including Huckabee against people and news organizations they didn’t like.


I get where Red Hen was coming from. In dark times, resistance is important.

Also, the controversy erupted in a place where I had a lot of eating experience, but in days before farm-to-table locavore dining options.
