So long, Al

I had my first taste of Popeye's Chicken when I was about 8 years old, and I never got over it. To this day, it's the only fast food I'll eat without hesitation, and that I eat regularly (which is to say, about twice a month, maybe less). So it's with a bit of sadness that I read that Al Copeland, the founder of Popeye's, has died at age 64. Thanks to him, fried chicken just doesn't taste right to me if it doesn't have a liberal dose of cayenne pepper in it.
