Dumb Asses Thwart Retail Sales

We reported earlier in this space that The Bad Ass Coffee Company was being given a hard time in puritanical Antioch, Il. Chicagoist and The Trib now report that the franchisee has withdrawn his lease after the Antioch Village Board passed a resolution 5-1 that read in part:
“The shop’s name is found to be utterly vulgar, to be highly offensive to the ordinary moral sensibilities of this community and to be repugnant to the entire concept of family values and traditional American ideals.”
Remind me never to step foot in this bassackwards small-minded town ever again. Especially when I’m jonseing for a hit of espresso.
