Excellent commentary from Payton, who writes: "A Chinese fast-food franchise at an airport is managed by a company owned by a Black Muslim named Jabir, except that it's really run by a white guy named Tony." The story he references in the Chicago Journal shows the mechanics of how the corruption scandals we've heard about in recent months actually work: "Tony" withdrew his interest once the investigations started. Funny, no?
