I hope everyone is familiar with that old saying, "I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream"?
Harassment over the passage of proposition 8 is still going on in Sacramento. Leatherby's Ice Cream was in the news again on the sixteenth and I missed reading the article. The Sacramento Bee published an article by Jennifer Garza, "Prop. 8 fallout doesn't daunt Ice cream shop's owner."
From the article:
"Sunday morning after church, Alan Leatherby thinks about ice cream.
He looks around the Arden Way restaurant as employees gear up for another day at Leatherby's Family Creamery, a Sacramento institution known for its half-gallon banana splits. Leatherby hopes it is a good day.
It has been three months since the November election and Leatherby family members still are dealing with the aftermath. They gave $20,000 to Proposition 8, the California ballot initiative that banned same-sex marriage, and their business has suffered.
They've been picketed, employees wearing company sweat shirts have been harassed, angry callers have phoned their creamery at all hours of the day. Hundreds of angry e-mails have come in. Bloggers have targeted their business.
Last week, Alan Leatherby received obscene Valentine's Day cards in the mail."
I think perhaps its time for a huge family outing for ice cream!!!
