I got an e-mail from someone recently who let me know that he didn’t approve of some campaign signs we had posted Hana Newcombon Leesburg Pike in 2008.  He got right to the point: “You know I have waited a long time to tell you this. You have completely alienated a lot of your customers by being left wing loons. I stopped shopping at your stand and at the Reston farmers market ever since you started making political statements at your stand on route 7. Just thought you should know.”
