AriZona = Brooklyn?

After a Twitterer urged a boycott of AriZona beverages because of Arizona state's new law requiring suspected illegal immigrants to show their papers, AriZona -- the beverage company, not the state -- defended itself.

As reported in the NY Times, Don Vultaggio, the founder and chairman of Arizona Beverages, posted a note on the company’s Web site headlined, “Arizona’s From New York.”

As a matter of fact, AriZona was started by, specifically, "two hard working guys from Brooklyn with a dream."

Not that state where immigrants, legal or illegal, and anyone who looks like an immigrant could be hounded.
