    just making excuses?

    They happen to be in market segments that have been hurt by the soft economy for some time.  How are their competitors doing?

      even in my rather conservative area.  There is a lot of backlash against Papa Johns, Applebees, and Chick Fil A and a few others due to all of this and more.  And some of the backlash is coming from surprising sources such as Republicans my husband works with. That is because they work in retail and feel badly for the employees in restaurants and a few retailers getting screwed over.
