Ruby’s gets it right…
in this day and age (there i go sounding like an old fogey again…consarnit!!)…it is hard to find anyone who really stands up for what they believe in…and if i hear one more person using the song “You’ve got to stand for something, or you’ll fall for anything” in order to to somehow prove to us all just how much gumption they have, i may throw up…it has become about as predictable as using “God bless the USA”, by Lee Greenwood…another song that should be immediately retired.
no…i’m talking about real, stand-up folks who don’t care about public perception or being “P.C.”, and just roll with their gut…damn the repercussions.
here’s a very good example. the owner of Ruby’s Steakhouse in Louisville (he also has restaurants in Cincinnati and Indiana) recently tossed OJ Simpson from his restaurant, on Derby Eve, because he was fed up with all of the attention Simpson has gotten, considering the pain and sorrow he has caused to so many folks.
of course, OJ’s lawyer is claiming it is about race and is saying he intends to sue…but bravo to Jeff Ruby for standing up for what he believes in.
It is a good read…check it out here.
