Re: the article; "UA-area Cup It Up restaurant closes," Oct 10. Let me get this straight: the owners publicly supported the President of the United States and his core policies and the hostile and harassing response, which included threats to burn down the building with the owners in it, caused the owners to permanently close the restaurant. I don't think this has ever happened before. It obviously follows that if you own a local business you better not publicly support the President. If this isn't a challenge to free speech I don't know what is.
