Boycott Borders

The bookstore chain refuses to carry the April-May issue of Free Inquiry magazine because it contains the infamous Danish cartoons.
"For us, the safety and security of our customers and employees is a top priority, and we believe that carrying this issue could challenge that priority," Borders Group Inc. spokeswoman Beth Bingham said Wednesday.


"We absolutely respect our customers' right to choose what they wish to read and buy and we support the First Amendment," Bingham said. "And we absolutely support the rights of Free Inquiry to publish the cartoons. We've just chosen not to carry this particular issue in our stores."

I prefer Barnes & Noble, anway.
