We had and are still having a turn out that police had to be directing traffic. It's just as crowded now as it was before noon.

It would be intrested to see what would happen if we voted on this issue!!!!!

This story has certainly exposed and revealed those city leaders/dictators who do NOT believe in free speech. They have outed themselves. Shameful.

No, what's shameful is that people are going out of their way to eat there today to show their support for hate and bigotry. These same people would have been defending the Birmingham Bus system 50 years ago and attacking Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King as being against "free enterprise."
