Thank you for being a solid and solitary voice against the spelling of Chick-Fil-A. I was at a cookout yesterday where various pronunciations by learned folk of the name of said organization were offered, none of them correct. I, alone and heard, offered a brief lesson. The last time, I hope, that those words pass my lips. Meanwhile, I love kiss-ins. There are two of these establishments in Massachusetts, neither in Boston. Amen.

The legal trademark on the term "Muppet" and the familiar Muppet characters are currently held by The Muppets Studio, a wholly owned division of The Walt Disney Company, although Sesame Workshop and the Jim Henson Company continue to occasionally use the term on their characters with certain permissions from Disney, which purchased The Muppets in 2004.

The Jim Henson Company, a separate and independent creative entity, is the organization that severed its ties with the offensive bigot chicken merchant.
