Well that sort of ruffled a few feathers among the coffee drinkers at the Stockman Cafe who heard about it. Now admittedly here in "fly over" country we don't have access to the national news cameras but we do have the ability to write a letter. So it was unanimously agreed that we send a letter to the Berkeley City Council. That letter is as follows:
By Proclamation and Decree,
We, the undersigned; being citizens of these United States of America, being citizens of the State of Kansas, being coffee drinkers of the Stockman’s Café, do announce and declare that the Berkley CA City Council members and the entire membership of Code Pink Organization shall be unwelcome as clientele at the Stockman’s Café and shall not park in the front of said café.
Furthermore. We, the undersigned; being citizens of these United States of America, being citizens of the State of Kansas, being coffee drinkers of the Stockman’s Café do offer and extended a welcome and thankful hand to any member of the United States Armed Services whether of current duty, honorably discharged, or of retired status.
Signed this 16th day of February, 2008 and sealed with this coffee stain.
All who came in that morning signed with pride and the letter will be sent via US Mail. We're not really expecting a phone call anytime soon with an apology or begging to be "reinstated" but it does feel good just signing and sending!
