Letter to Simmons Honey Ranchito Douglas Arizona

5 05 2010

Dear Mr. Simmons,

On my most recent trip to Arizona, Pierce and Bisbee to be exact, I purchased a jar of your wonderful desert wildflower honey. I would have bought more but it was the last jar I found at the Bisbee Co-op. My family loves it and in fact it is nearly done.  Unfortunately as you may be aware of the recent passage of the oppressive racial profiling law against persons of Mexican origin, including myself.  I regret to inform you that I will notbe returning to Arizona, and specifically the Wilcox area of Southern Arizona for the foreseeable future and will most defiantly boycott any products with an Arizona origin, including yours. I do regret this action given I am sure you are a wonderful human being puton this earth to do good for mankind.

In googling your company Simmons Honey Ranchito I’ve found it to be just the type of business I try to patronage when ever possible. You may want to advise your elected officials and other local businesses of the unfortunate suffering a small company like yours will experience as a result of their ungodly political short sightedness.

I am only one person and you are only one company and one loss of a $12.99 sale may not have much of an impact on either one of our finances; however multiply this by tens of thousands or millions of times and well I’m sure I don’t have to explain further.
