Keep Blanking That Chicken

I love the Daily Show. And if you've been watching lately, Jon Stewart has adopted this new tag line, which I stole for the title of this post. The Associated Press ran this story of a Louisiana man, Alexander Legault, who pleaded guilty to defrauding the Egyptian government out of $7 million for a shipment of frozen chicken he never delivered. That's a lot of chicken not to show up. According to the article, Legault's chicken adventure included an 1986 indictment and a move to and subsequent deportation from Canada in 2002. Now, he'll be in one place for the next 7 years...federal prison. More here.
