First, check out today's Voodoo Doughnut Traffic Report. Okay, so I think it's a pretty good bet that most of the people in that line aren't from the Portland metro area. WHICH IS FINE! I'm thrilled with Voodoo's success, and tourism is a financial boon to our community (while giving us something else to make fun of). All that being said, here's the Blogtown Ethicist's ethical query of the day:
I WANT A FREAKING DOUGHNUT. IS IT ETHICALLY OKAY FOR ME TO SHOW MY I.D. TO THE FIRST PERSON IN LINE, AND SAY, "I GET TO CUT. I'M FROM HERE."
Your opinion on this pressing matter—pressing, because I really want a freaking doughnut—is welcome in the comments below.
