Bistro at the Bijou in Knoxville Refuses Service to Local Politician Bigot, Stacy Campfield

Tonight, State Senator Stacy Campfield got a taste of his own medicine at a local restaurant. Campfield believes that homosexuality is immoral and that HIV is derived from a single gay flight attendant having sex with a monkey. Campfield's views have been called "archaic" by local health officials and criticized nationwide in recent months (http://www.wbir.com/news/article/202839/2/Tennessee-Senator-Stacey-Campfield-stands-by-radio-comments-experts-say-hes-wrong).

Tonight, the downtown restaurant connected to the Bijou Theater refused to serve Campfield stating on Facebook,

I hope that Stacy Campfield now knows what it feels like to be unfairly discriminated against.

I'm sure that more on this story will be available soon. The post on Facebook certainly attracted some attention tonight.

I'm thinking about doing an OCP (open/closed principle) kata for the next Knoxville Software Craftsmanship meeting. Which, by the way, will be October 13th.

Inspiration here: http://giordano.scalzo.biz/2010/02/06/milano-xpug-january-coding-dojo/

So far, we've been getting katas from NimblePros (nimblepros.com/katas). NimblePros is one of the sponsors of the Hudson Software Craftsmanship Group (hudsonsc.com).

In addition to monthly meetings (which are run very much like a code dojo), we're talking about participating in the global day of code retreat. Should be lots of fun.
