Grab Bag Friday: African-American Boycott of L.L. Bean

This has been cracking Kevin & I up for weeks (we live just a few minutes from the L.L. Bean headquarters). My friend Andy used to work for the Onion when it was just a goofy little college newspaper out of Madison. I had a subscription delivered to Maine when I went off to school and my friends and I would gather around a table in the union, read it outloud, and laugh uproariously. Ah, I love the Onion.

IMPORTANT FAMILY-FRIENDLY NOTE: If you are unfamiliar with the Onion, please note that, especially in recent years, much of the content on their website is highly inappropriate for children. So if you head over to browse their site, please use caution and/or be careful who you're browsing with.
