Orange You Glad?

The quaint English town of Bowness is up in arms about a new Thai restaurant with a brilliant-orange facade that's meant to reflect the brilliant-orange robes worn by Buddhist monks. Said one owner of a nearby B&B: "'It's horrendous. I've got no axe to grind with the owner but the colour [sic] is just not in keeping with the Lake District and it's a bit over-the-top." Retorted the owner of Thai Brasserie: "My business partners, who are Thai, have suggested that interference with the colour [sic] scheme could be regarded as racist." Yikes! [Daily Mail]
