Since the company was founded in 1946, Chick-fil-A restaurants have been closed on Sunday to give employees time off with their families and time to worship if they choose.

WaPo has published a “Style” piece on the new dean of the Washington National Cathedral. The quote from the article that his getting the most traction is:
