*II starts
two year
ORACLE, Ariz. (AP) - Four
men and four women embarked yes-
terday on a two-year journey inside a
stationary glass ark.
t The eight are stewards of
Biosphere II, a self-sustaining envi-
ronment materially sealed off from
the world they call Biosphere I. The
private, for-profit project is in-
tended to develop technology to
colonize space and improve and un-
derstand the Earth.
"It is a brave new step," said
crew member Abigail Alling, 31, of
New York. Her voice cracking with
emotion, she called the project "a
reminder that our future is not
fixed and not final and ever
Dr. Roy Walford, the oldest
crew member, said, "We are fearful
but loving; we court what lurks in
the labyrinth, pledging at all odds
to make ours an honest destiny."
Sex has not been ruled out among
the crew members, but pregnancy
Sally Silverstone, 36, of
England, recalled watching "the
good ship Biosphere II grow from
her magnificent stainless steel hull
to her lofty space-frame sails, and
now I feel exhilarated to be going
gut with her on her maiden voyage."

Ex-Cracker Barrel employee

protests restaurant

by Rob Patton
Daily Staff Reporter

George Frisbie, who was fired
from his job as a waiter at Cracker
Barrel Restaurant in Tallahassee,
Fla., because he is gay, is in
Belleville, Mich., today to help or-
ganize a protest of the opening a
Cracker Barrel there.
Frisbie, who worked at Cracker
Barrel for three and a half years
with "an excellent work record and
no problems from management at
all," said he was fired this January
after his manager told him he had
learned Frisbie was gay.
The chain has issued a national
directive to its restaurants stating
that "Cracker Barrel is founded
upon a concept of traditional
American values ... it is inconsis-
tent with our concept of values and
is perceived to be inconsistent with
those of our customer base, to em-
ploy individuals ... whose sexual
preferences fail to demonstrate
normal heterosexual values which
have been the foundation of families
in our society."
"The manager called me into
work on Sunday, my day off, and
took me for a walk around the
restaurant, where the customers
couldn't see us. He told me it had
recently come to his attention that I
was homosexual. He said 'Since it's

our policy not to hire (gays), we're
going to have to terminate you,"'
Frisbie said.
Frisbie said he couldn't believe
he had been fired. "My reaction was
one of shock. I was too stunned to
feel anything. I said to my manager,
'Is this legal?' He said he didn't
know, and it was obvious he didn't
care," he said.
In fact, Frisbie found, it is legal
to fire people on the basis of their

sit in," he said.
Frisbie said he is unsure what ef-
fect the demonstrations will have
on Cracker Barrel. "I don't know
whether they'll change their policy
or not. What I would hope for is
that they would come out nation-
ally and say 'We made an incredible
mistake, we sent the wrong message,
and we'll do what we can to make
up for it,"' he said.

sexual orientation in all but four
states, as well as a number of cities
and counties. "But not Florida, and
not Tallahassee," he said.
Frisbie said he organized a small
demonstration against the Cracker
Barrel in Tallahassee and took part
in organizing a larger one, including
a sit-in where demonstrators tied up
about 12 tables in the restaurant for
a few hours. He is now helping to
set up a rally at the new franchise in
Belleville, which is about halfway
between Detroit and Ann Arbor.
"We're planning pickets outside
and we're going to attempt a quiet

Barrel refused to comment on the
Frisbie added that discrimination
against gay men and lesbians goes
further than just Cracker Barrel.
"Cracker Barrel is the first place
I've heard of that's openly come out
and said, 'We won't hire homosexu-
als,' but I think a lot of establish-
ments don't hire people they per,
ceive as gay," he said.
"I really want to stress the im-
portance of this. If one person is
stripped of their rights, then no one
is really safe from discrimination,"
he said.

Wait... do I have everything?
