    Nah; I think Jameson had the cheesecake surgically tightened and tidied up a few years back.

    I don't think people give a shit or at least anymore than they used to. I don't like making generational type arguments, but just like how people climb over each other to get views, likes or retweets on social media, the new 'it' thing is virtue signaling and feined outrage for attention.

    "Oh yeah, you went to a rally? I put a restaurant out if business!" Wow, warrior spirit!

    Sure, but I think if a company or one of its employees hasn't done anything wrong, a good amount of the responsibility for that spoiled mcmuffin lies with them when they cave in one way or another. I know it's easier said than done when it's not my business, and I'm not the one getting angry messages for whatever the offense of the day is. But most people won't care or hear about it, and the attention span for most internet outrage is pretty short.

    Edit: I was half awake when I replied to this, and somehow missed the bit about the Satchel pedal. Wasn't commenting on that, just speaking more generally.

    Why are we discussing some nonesense article from the Metro? A paper whose official distribution method is accidentally sitting on one in the train.

    Not 100% sure what's going on there grammatically but human nature doesn't change, just our exposure to it. I'm sure every social issue to ever arise was hit with, "People are not right anymore man."

    I didn't read the article, but I think this nails it. A slow news day combined with a bit of self promotion.


    I can see that angle, too.

    But it’s a small cafe. 4 people could be 100% of the afternoon customers

    I'll confess, I hadn't considered that.

    Sad thing is, I’m used to too many folks lying via statistics (e.g. the tRump sicophants citing Obama’s first year economic stats, completely ignoring the progress made over the mess that Bush Jr. left) that that comes naturally to me.
