    Hey, who cut this recording? She started to talk about gas prices and the tape was clearly edited. What did she say?

    Did the "so called" decision not to lock in chicken wing prices have anything to do with the fact that no company would give a long term contract? Yes I think so! She acts as if this decision to "float the market" on wings was actually a choice. In a skyrocketing commodities market why would bwld chose not to lock in wing prices?

    Again, who cut the video?
