1. If one if offended by the mear mention of BACON/PORK they have a screw loose

How is the word bacon offensive? I can understand someone not eating it for what ever reason they have. Personally I don't care for it. But to simply read the word and be hurt by it to the point you demand the word's removal, that's just controlling and manipulative.

2. Somebody needs to get a grip and it ain't the bistro owners

Pork products are forbidden to me as well but I don't try and take down signs that have the word "bacon" on them.

3. I suspect

this is only news because of someone that hates the diversity in Winooski...

a comment was made and a business voluntarily took down a sign... nothing to look at here

the people making this a big deal are haters IMHO

5. I fully agree

 

Someone was offended, and the business apologized and took the sign down. Whats the issue?

6. I used to go to a Jewish Deli and was shocked to see they offered Bacon and Sausage.

When I asked the person who worked there why they offered this they replied it was turkey bacon and sausage. So to the lady offended bacon does not always mean pork.
