As racial tensions continue to boil over nationwide in response to the George Zimmerman verdict, a dried out batch of asparagus is what was the last straw for one University City, Mo. resident.
"I just felt like stirring it up a little bit, letting them know that somebody cares," he told commissioners, adding that the asparagus he saw at his store was a far cry from the asparagus he saw at the Schnucks in nearby Ladue, where it sat in water, looking beautiful, the Post-Dispatch reported.
Olander said that though he may have been in an "ornery mood," he still stands by his complaint.
