    City officials in San Antonio, who discriminated against Christian-owned Chick-fil-A in their airport contracting, are trying to hide from the public their conversations now that they’re under investigation for their behavior.

    A few weeks ago, we were shocked to hear that a man survived for five days by eating nothing but Taco Bell hot sauce packets (resulting in his getting Taco Bell free for a year). This started us on the path to thinking that Taco Bell hot sauce was magical. And now, in light of another hot-sauce life-saving measure, we think we may be on to something. In—happy Monday, everyone—Florida, a man was sitting down at a Taco Bell in Winter Haven when he decided to get up from his seat to procure more hot sauce. Mere seconds later, an...

    Staff at an Oklahoma branch of Taco Bell were forced to hide out in a locked bathroom in the early hours of New Year’s Eve when a man fired a gun through a drive-thru window over a missing portion of hot sauce. Police said the suspect yelled about the sauce before he fired multiple rounds at the Oklahoma City store, local station KFOR reported.
