Doing my shopping at J.C. Penney

Just catching up on this soc-con outrage, but way to stand up to bigotry J.C. Penny.
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres said she was "proud and happy" that retail store J.C. Penney had stood by her in the face of a conservative anti-gay campaign, and said there was no such thing as a "pro-gay bandwagon."

Breaking her silence on the furor, DeGeneres, one of America's best known gay celebrities, also poked fun at the One Million Moms group who had urged J.C. Penney to drop her as a spokeswoman because she is a lesbian and said they would boycott the store.
Oddly, I hadn't been to the store in years but bought some shirts there a few weeks ago. Think it was their store brand. Impressed with the quality of the workmanship. Got a good price on sale and they're holding up well. Now I'm doubly glad I spent my money there.

Haven't seen any ads with Ellen but those new screechy commercials seem to be on a continuous loop on the TV. Those have really got to go.
