(UPDATED) Today in Seattle: Group to make public mockery of NOM's failed Starbucks boycott

by Jeremy Hooper

As of now, 641,541 people have thanked Starbucks for standing up against the National Organization For Marriage and supporting equality (versus the less-than-26k supporting NOM). Today at noon, SumOfUs.org members will go in-person with their highly successful action, publicly presenting the coffee giant with a Thank You card:

For all you’ve done, we want to personally invite you to join us at our thank-you card delivery THIS Wednesday April 4th at noon in Seattle. We’ll be meeting at Starbucks HQ (2401 Utah Avenue South, Seattle, WA 98134) at noon to say thanks to Starbucks for standing up for marriage equality. We’ll be there with our friends at Washington United for Marriage.
RSVP HERE: It’s time to thank Starbucks in Seattle [SumOfUs.org]

Meanwhile, NOM will continue to ignore the "Sorry for your loss of public perception" cards that must surely be flooding the paper tiger of an organization now that its ability to organize has taken its most public hit yet.

NOTE: An earlier version of this report said the demonstration was yesterday. Sorry about that. Clearly I haven't had enough coffee. Off to Starbucks I go…
