4. 9% differential? (Amazon's founder has pledged mllions in support of Same-Sex marriage)
Amazonís Founder Pledges $2.5 Million in Support of Same-Sex Marriage
By MICHAEL D. SHEAR
Jeff Bezos, the billionaire founder of Amazon.com, and his wife, MacKenzie, have agreed to donate $2.5 million to help pass a same-sex marriage referendum in Washington State, instantly becoming among the largest financial backers of gay marriage rights in the country.
I don't like that they fund RETHUGS at all, but if the difference is less than 10% and with the overt support of gay marriage, perhaps that argues on behalf of using both?
AND, I should add, to purchase locally when at all possible...?
