A call to check the validity of an article claiming that Enid, OK restaurant owner is discriminating by refusing service to customers who are disabled or on welfare was a resounding success. The owner promised to send a check for $10,000 to the caller, if only the caller would give a name and address.
The owner took alot of time describing how he had every right to refuse service to anyone receiving food stamps, because, as he put it, he had ‘already paid them’ with his tax dollars. When given the opportunity to understand that many on assistance had paid into the system via their own taxes for decades, he didn’t seem concerned.
The number to the restaurant is included, in case readers want to make their own calls : 580 233 7655
