The Chosen 100

A mass of tents and people gathered outside the new Chik-Fil-A in Bearden Thursday, each hoping to win free food at the restaurant for a year.

Chik-Fil-A offers the "First 100 Celebration" at all its openings, and the first 100 in the store get free meals for a year at the restuarant.

People started arriving more than a day ago at the new restaurant, which opens after 6 a.m. at 4944 Kingston Pike Thursday.

Are Animal Abusers as bad as Sex Offenders?


Most of us love animals and get very upset when you hear a story of animal abuse.

Some states think so, including Tennessee.

We hear about these stories all of the time. A person has a bad experience and they share it on a social media website like Facebook or Twitter or even write a blog.

But what happens when someone doesn’t like what you said and sues you.

That’s what’s going on in Oregon, where a pastor is reportedly suing Julie Smith and her daughter for $500,000 after the two blogged about the church and described it as "cult-like."

Listener Email: "Am I Leading My Ex On?"

Ashley and Brad,

My boyfriend and I broke up about two months ago, but we're still on good terms, which is good for me because -- occasionally -- I need him to come over and fix stuff (like my garbage disposal or my sink faucet).

My friends say I should stop asking him to do stuff for me since I broke up with him. They say calling him for help is like I'm leading him on.
But I say if he's willing to do it, who is it really hurting?
