As if one needed another reason to buy herbs and spices from Penzey’s Spices, headquartered in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin – here’s another. In addition to their excellent quality, great prices, huge selection, and great service, now there’s this letter from Bill Penzey, founder and president:
As evidenced by the glimpse into my spice cabinet below, I am a huge fan of Penzey’s spices. Those of you living in larger cities will find Penzey’s stores near you – there are three in the Portland, OR area. Penzey’s excellent website services are there for all the rest.
Here is the link to the Penzey’s/ACLU page on Penzey’s web site. It is well-worth taking the time to read. From the police raids and harassment that I experienced as a young gay man, through the cruelty of Anita Bryant, the infuriating lack of action by this country’s leaders during the AIDS crisis, the frightening funding of California’s Prop 8 by the churches, to now, it has been a wild ride. I am extremely grateful to all who have supported me and my friends over the years. As Bill Penzey says, “Hooray, hooray!”
