Nordstrom signs on to support of gay marriage (a change from 1993?)
Nordstrom, the upscale retail chain, has announced its support for same-sex marriage in a memo to employees, as outlined in this Chicago Tribune story, link
The memo was issued by company president Blake Nordstrom
The company joins Starbucks and Amazon in supporting gay marriage, in contrast to Chick-fil-A.
But back during the time of the enormous 1993 March on Washington (at the end of April), a few employees were reported as having been fired after showing up the following Monday with heavy sunburns.
Another minor story Monday concerned some violence when the Westboro Baptist Church tried to disrupt a military funeral because the veteran being honored was said to be gay.
