The Case of the Homophobic Duct Tape

Want to know something weird? For the past few weeks, someone has been coming by & covering two flyers in our window with duct tape. Check it:

see more pictures on our Flickr page

The flyers are for Pride and Color, a blog for GLBTQ Racial and Ethnic minorities in the Five College Community.

Obviously, someone finds the image of two men kissing (!) or of two women lying next to each other (!!) to be so offensive they feel moved to blot it out. At the same time, it's such a strangely futile way to go about it (duct tape is, after all, easily removable). Are they just doing this for themselves? Or do they think they're doing a service to the community somehow - some sort of self-appointed morality officer? It's hard to know what someone gets out of such a strange act.

In any case, the flyers had been up for awhile and we were going to take them down to put up some newer ones, but as long as this keeps happening, I think we'll just keep leaving them up.

Rise Up Singing Sing-along!

Thanks to everyone who made it out to the Rise Up Singing Sing-along Fundraiser yesterday night.

We sang alot of songs, raised a bunch of money and had a wonderful time. We hope you did too. It was just another reminder of what a caring and supportive community we have at Food For Thought Books. We know that we're going to make it through this rough economic patch with all of you on our side!
