PAPA JOHN RESIGNS AFTER N-WORD RACISM SHAME BUT KANSAS CITY LOCAL LATE NIGHT PIZZA STAYS WINNING!!!
First, a word about the culture war, common decency and political correctness in relation to the signature Italian food of the United States . . .
CNBC: Papa John's founder John Schnatter resigns as chairman of company's board after apologizing for racial slur
Context and a reminder that stupid talk costs money:
"Papa John's founder John Schnatter's conference call in May came to light after Forbes magazine detailed the incident in an article on Wednesday. The report said Schnatter was on a call with marketing agency Laundry Service when he tried to downplay comments he made about the National Football League and allegedly said, “Colonel Sanders called blacks n-----s."
Schnatter complained that the KFC founder never faced public backlash. The call was a role-playing exercise for Schnatter to prevent future public relations fumbles.
Shares of Papa John's fell by as much as 5.9 percent to a new 12-month low of $47.80 a share in intraday trading Wednesday — erasing $96.2 million in market value. The stock recovered somewhat, closing down 4.8 percent at $48.33 a share."
Meanwhile . . .
HERE ARE THE TKC TOP CHOICES FOR LATE NIGHT KANSAS CITY PIZZA!!!
TKC is trying to cut down on carbs so this list is basically just for late night dreaming:
Hands down, the best late night Kansas City pizza is Joe's By The Slice in Westport
Foodies might disagree but they'll lose a (late night, drunken) debate on the topic . .
Sarpino's is open crazy late in Westport and they're worth a look as well.
KC Kitchen & Pizzeria is a new contender but their late night offerings are also worthy of consideration.
Best part, all of these places are open for a few more hours TONIGHT.
You decide . . .
