Last week, at an Applebee's in Georgia, I met a married couple. They were older, with grown children. They were friendly and engaging people from Ohio. We talked about beer. We talked about veterans. And then, unfortunately, we talked about politics.
I'm sure we can all agree that it is a sad day when a man burned by fajitas while praying can't sue Applebee's. But perhaps it will provide him -- and the rest of us mourning this tragedy of our broken judicial system -- some solace to know that he is not alone.
So what could have led such a fastidious administrator to risk a bundle on the chanciest investment on the planet? A Broadway show, specifically Rocky, the Musical, which closed two weeks ago without recouping its $16,500,000 capital investment.
