More "Great Wall" News

...but this time, it's a Chinese restaurant in the Bronx. Some guy tried to pay for his take-out with some change, including ten pennies, and the restaurant refused to accept them. What did he do?
He told his wife and two daughters to never order from Great Wall again. Then he sent e-mail messages to a number of elected officials.
A media circus ensued, state senators showed up, threats were made, and pennies were accepted. Not that the restaurant was in the right, but calling your state senator about a crazy Chinese take-out place seems a bit of overkill. Read the whole story in the NYTimes.
