What are ya, chicken?

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

One week before we expect hundreds of folks to protest the inauguration of our Commander in Chief to his second term locally, PETA is doing their own protest against another military man: The Colonel.

Today at noon, the KFC at 3850 Figueroa will be treated to Meat is Murder posters and angry chants from megaphones telling them to get the 'cluck' out of LA. Hopefully there will be people in chicken costumes.

We don't mean to make light of the peril of the chicken (although we must admit that we do love the extra crispy and the popcorn chicken might be laced with crack, we're so addicted) but this is Los Angeles and so we're left to wonder if anti-KFC folks like Jenny Garth and Jason Alexander (who got fired from being a spokesman for the company when he joined PETA) will attend the protest? Will there be an already red carpet for protesters to throw blood on?
