Seriously. A reason to patronize this grease-and-gristle chain? In downstate Illinois, a manager asked some gun-bearing men to leave, after another customer complained that there was a table full of guys with guns.

They were plain-clothes cops, but still.

So, the local police chief has told all of his Barney Fifes to avoid Denny's. Maybe they'll lose some weight, and meanwhile, to make up for the sure-to-follow NRA inspired national boycott of Denny's by gun-nuts, let's all us libruls go there and get something. Maybe to go, give it to the nearest homeless guy.

And of course, the chief says they'll still respond to emergency calls from Denny's. Thank god. I for one would hate to see America get divided over the politics of guns.
