If I had observed tattered tents and lean-tos which might have belonged to some of our homeless and hungry population, my feelings about this campsite would have been different, but these were expensive, large, and for the most part new tents, and their owners were mostly young people, possibly college kids on spring break.
I'm sorry. I really try not to be judgmental, but this scene made me laugh.... or wince... or maybe even frown. And since it has nothing to do with Route 66, I apologize.
Here is this morning's news report on KRMG, a local radio station, with further details:
"The promise of free meals for a year drew a crowd to the Tulsa area’s newest Chick-Fil-A restaurant.It’s at 71st and Lynn Lane in Broken Arrow. The crowd started gathering as early as 4 a.m. Wednesday for the opening Thursday morning.
The first 100 customers who show up get 52 free meals from Chick-Fil-A.
KRMG found out people travel the country to take part in these openings.
“This is my fourth one.” A camper from Chicago said.
There were people in line who traveled from Texas and even Minnesota.
“This is all they do is travel around the country. They’ve been to 140 or something outrageous.” He added.
Broken Arrow’s new Chick-Fil-A opens Thursday at 6 a.m."
