Back in September we introduced you to Politeed, the Richardson-based T-shirt maker garnering pub of late for its apparel more hot-button than, well, hot. They got tees for every cause, if not occasion: gay rights, foreign policy, immigration, abortion, terrorism, you name it. And, turns out, the company's found the perfect way to spread the word (or words): According to today's media release, Politeed's wrangled its way into celebs' Grammy goodie bags this weekend, going to presenters and performers. And the company will introduce a new line of tees for the occasion, including one that reads, "Should we use war as a way to free people?" I just got very, very tired. --Robert Wilonsky
