Col. Sanders Statue: Bronze Versus Chicken Poo
DEBORAH AMOS, Host:
Good morning. I'm Deb Amos.
In the city of Corbin, Kentucky, it's a case of rival statues. Corbin is where Kentucky Fried Chicken founder Colonel Sanders opened his first restaurant in the 1930s. City leaders now want a bronze statue to honor this finger-licking good Colonel in downtown Corbin. But animal rights group PETA has proposed a statue, too. Their idea - a statue of the Colonel not in bronze, but rather in chicken droppings.
