Miller Time no more

This week a friend sent me a link to a Chicago Tribune story detailing the Miller Brewing Company's substantial support of the illegal immigration movement:

Marchers had to duck into fast-food restaurants for water when they first took to Chicago's streets in support of illegal immigrants five months ago. At the next two marches, family-owned grocery stores offered free bottled water from trucks emblazoned with their names.This time, as demonstrators march from Chinatown to House Speaker Dennis Hastert's (R-Ill.) Batavia office this weekend, they will have Miller Brewing Co., as a sponsor.

The brewer has paid more than $30,000 for a planning convention, materials and newspaper ads publicizing the event.

My friend says that we should support a boycott of Miller beer. Well, no problem for me - taste wise, Miller beer is on a par with equine urine, and it does not contaminate my fridge to begin with.
