Thus endeth the boycott

You may have heard of Texas Automotive Export, an auto parts shop in Dripping Springs that sent a fax to an Israeli customer saying they will not do business with Israeli citizens and suggesting that they "restrain their military" and "stop your oppression of the Palestinian people". Diane at Letter from Gotham recently suggested that all New Yorkers boycott Dripping Springs in return. Well, fear not, Diane, the boycott is over, as negative publicity and the threat of a lawsuit has caused TAE's owner John Harris to retract his words. That global village thing can be a two-edged sword, John. Better luck next time.
