Banning of Free Speech After being a loyal Costco customer for many years, I am completely dismayed over your decision to remove Dinesh D'Souza's book from your stores. Political leanings should never preclude the exercise of free speech. I will not renew my membership with your company, and will encourage colleagues and friends to do the same.
