    WTF!!!!

    I am so pissed off with these **** marketers renaming every
    **** building around. My daughters middle school is now
    'in discussions' with Frito Lay about calling the school
    Frito Lay Middle School and it's this guy's fault.

    Before anyone else was doing it .. this dude Mark Hughes
    convinced a bunch of yokels in Oregon to rename their
    town to the same name as his dot com -- hence the change
    from Halfway, Oregon to Half.com, Oregon. WTF!!!

    According to USA Today
    http://www.usatoday.com/money/books/reviews/2005-07-25-buzz-marketing_x.htm
    and a bunch of other big time book reviewers the dude
    is on 'fire' and 'right on' with his load of marketing
    crap.

    Personally .. I can't stand this type of stuff. I like
    to be able to turn off the TV, turn off the radio, close
    the stinkin magazine and have no more ads. But .. thx
    to wealthy bastards like Mark Hughes .. me and my kids
    are hit daily with additional ads.

    So .. here is my response. I've actually ordered one of
    his books from Amazon

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1591840929

    I am then going to take the cover to Kinkos, scan it,
    change the author's name to something else ...like
    MIKE HUNT and then gingerly place it on the shelf at
    my local Barnes & Noble.

    Yes .. i know this will do absolutely nothing ..
    but they say if we just switched our lightbulbs to
    that new kind .. we could save a bunch of coal ..
    so this is my little protest.

    Welcome Pearl


    I hope you enjoy your stay with our family. You are family now so feel free to join our discussions. I see this advertising and sponsorship business has you riled. That's the way of America these days I'm afraid. Seem like new ways of parting us from our money are popping up daily. America is truly becoming corporate. I'm glad you decided to choose our family to share with. Looking forward to seeing you around....


    Peace......
