Over At AlterNet

-- by Dave Johnson

I have this up over at AlterNet: 6 Brands Playing Footsie with Conservatives and Paying the Price,

Chick-fil-A might have gotten a nice, one-day sales boost with "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day," but tying a national brand to aging white bigots is not a winning strategy – and the numbers prove it.

Have been seeing more and more great pieces by you across the interwebs, Mr. Johnson.

I made mention of this with link over at the Focus on the Family community forum on the thread supporting the Chick-fil-A policy (their "Appreciation Day") and to my surprise it went up, and as no surprise, was scrubbed in less than 24 hours.

I find such willingness to gatekeep to that extent both cowardly...and typical.
