For those who bolted: You might wanna reconsider Bolthouse

You might also remember that this donation led to an intense period of speculation regarding the role (or lack thereof) that Mr. Bolthouse now plays in the juice company he founded, Bolthouse Farms. And you might be aware that the donation led some gay folks to boycott the juice company altogether, and most every gay who was aware of the matter to at least express hesitancy before choosing that particular brand.

Hey great, I always liked their juice! :-P (I never really banned it, but I can say it's been FOREVER since I've had it!)
