A Slice of Literacy over demagoguery

No Mas Muertes, mistakenly called No Mas Derechos by one of my co-workers, started a campaign of businesses opposed to the new Arizona Law, SB-1070. The campaign, entitled "We Mean Business". had some ninety local business owners putting signs up in their windows indicating that they did not support the new law.

Recently, the owner of the Brooklyn Pizza Company on 4th avenue garnered some publicity when he announced that he would take down the sign he had put up and no longer support the campaign. According to him, he came to this decision after reading the bill and discovering that it did not call for manhunts of anyone that had brown pigmentation and did not advocate the mass murder of all boys between the ages of 1 and 5.

If you are concerned about the arm of the law dragging anyone not quite white from their hearth and home, maybe you too should read the wording of the law, set to take effect on July 29th.
