The Washington Post has a brief mention from AP yesterday, hat tip: Cathy, about a student petition to give Chick-fil-A the boot from the University of Maryland campus. The thought-police are alive and well in O’Malley-land (but we knew that!):
COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Some students at the University of Maryland want Chick-fil-A to close its campus location.
The students have started a petition to get the campus Chick-fil-A shut down in response to comments about same-sex marriage by a company executive. The online petition calls on the university to replace the Chick-fil-A in the Stamp Student Union building with a more accepting and maybe even healthier dining option.
There is more here at NBC Washington which tells us that 600 (so far) have signed the petition at that Obama-inspired organization Change.org. That is 600 more college kids and their professors who have given their contact information to the for-profit Change.org to sell for marketing purposes.
If you haven’t heard of the controversy (away in the arctic for the summer?) visit our earlier post here about the highly successful Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.
