    Im not saying its great food, but it could be much worse, at least the veggies are better.

    The trick, is to get the bread toasted first. I like tuna with american cheese, tomato, spinach, red onion, banana peppers, and mustard.

    Which comment? The one where I didn't comment, or the comment of not commenting?

    But possibly suspected of being involved with child abuse? No, not funny.
    Agreed, nothing here to joke about. I hope the guy is innocent; he has two young children of his own. As others have said, just whispered speculation is enough to ruin lives, though.


    Edit: just read this...Subway suspends Jared Fogle Over Child Porn Allegations ... he hasn't been charged with any crime, is cooperating in the investigation which is against an employee of his foundation, not him; but still, Subway cut him loose and dumped him like a sack of low-fat turkey slices.

    That is a tough one. The police need to come out soon and say whether or not they are arresting him for child porn or not. I realize this investigation may take a lot of hours but you have one man's life hanging on a thin rope.

    Ah yes, go ahead and feign ignorance now.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    No, that's America for you - in America, if corporations don't get out in front of the politically correct mob, the mob tries to destroy them. Subway simply did what your country has trained them to do whenever there is a hint of a problem. The attack on cultural icons in the Confederate Flag stampede is a perfect example. If Subway didn't move, they'd be tarred as supporting child porn.

    I'm not feigning your lack of coherence.

    Subway certainly responded quickly on this. Maybe a too little quickly unless they know something we don't.

    I disagree that they be tarred as supporting child porn by not acting this rapidly. Even if he is found guilty of possessing child porn I really don't think this puts Subway in a bad light.

    If he is found guilty he will be another prominent successful male who blew it all away because he couldn't control his sexual urges. Unbelievable but almost a weekly revelation it seems.

    I appreciate that, but in my view it's undeniable that in today's America the private lives and actions of employees or spokespeople are directly linked to their employers and if their employers don't banish them immediately they are tarred as supporters or condoning the actions/words of the employee. You see it time and time again. Donald Trump is the latest example.

    Many American corporations now have HR professionals who scan the social media accounts of their employees and will immediately fire anyone seen to be using speech that may badly reflect on the corporation. The need to vilify any speech that is not acceptable to the collective is out of control. In my view, it is no different from McCarthyism and the stain of that on America mid-20th century.
