Things are continuing to heat up. I’m getting all kinds of information, and as I get it, I want to post it for everyone.
Here is a website so that you can do your own queries to find out who has donated to both sides of the Prop 8 campaign by state, city, and zip code. I encourage you to do so. I did for my area, and I have discovered some small businesses in my area that I will avoid.
Also, please notice the new link on the sidebar “Prop 8 Dishonor Roll”. This is a list of major donors to the “yes” effort. You may be surprised what you find. I for one am going to print it and make sure I refer to it and not do business with these people – and let them know why.
For those of my friends who live in Long Beach – and other parts of the Los Angeles area – beware of El Pollo Loco & Denny’s.

I also found a blogger who has listed all the El Pollo Loco’s to avoid (thanks Faith!). Her blog is:
As I get more information, I’ll post it here.
