Try the pancakes
Just back from lunch at Cafe Hon. All the tables were full, despite the protest outside, so I sat at the counter and had two mugs of Zeke’s coffee and blueberry pancakes. The pancakes were excellent.
People in the restaurant were talking animatedly and tucking into their food with evident relish. I couldn’t help but notice that the two dozen or so protesters across the street appeared rather sullen.
As I walked to my car, I overheard a Hampdenite explain to his son, “None of those people actually live here. Why don’t they demonstrate for something?”
To round things out, I commend to you Mobtown Shank’s extensive commentary on the “hontroversy.” Sample sentence: “You can't boycott a place you never really went to in the first place.” The Shank’s analysis is thorough and reasonable, worth your attention.
For my part, the cascade of abuse to which Denise Whiting has been subjected, whatever the merits of the trademark issue, does not put our fair city in a flattering light.
