Arguing they are "a longtime employer and feeder of the gay community," Rocco’s Little Chicago Pizzeria in Tucson posted a tweet, and then a sign on their door, saying they reserve the right to refuse to serve legislators, because, ewww, idiocy.

THE LAST FIREWALL AGAINST THE LIES

Independent media has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies.   Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook.  Never before has independent media been more endangered.  If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
