The Resistance Starts Now

I took a little strength from this note about restaurants in my hometown of Washington:
"At least 15 D.C.-area eateries running the gamut from 24/7 Diner to FLOTUS fave Chez Billy Sud have pledged some of their profits from January 20 to 22 to NGOs with agendas that are effectively the opposite of the incoming president’s. All In Service, the effort’s organizer, offers restaurants a handful of different aid groups to choose from, among them Planned Parenthood, the Human Rights Campaign, and a local advocate for immigrant rights. The organizers tell BuzzFeed these 15 spots are 'just the beginning,' and add they’re talking to another dozen or so restaurants, with the end goal of seeing 'the entire D.C. service industry participate.'"
It's a start.
