    There was a Bojangles in Parma in the 80′s. I remember driving by it as a kid on my way to my grandma’s. I have no idea where it was exactly (near Parmatown?) and when it closed.

    Great stuff, guys. Loved the discussion about editing, media and feigning outrage/the uninformed. Solid discussion.

    ‘The uninformed’? whatever scort your just a elitist intellectual
