As for me, the $500 favor [Amazon.com] did for me this Christmas will surely rebound in additional business down the line. Why would I ever shop anywhere else online? Then again, there may be another reason good customer service makes sense. “Jeff used to say that if you did something good for one customer, they would tell 100 customers,” Mr. Kotha said.it's true! it's all true! amazon replaced the west wing DVD i got where the scene when zoey asked charlie out wouldn't play. and they were awesome about it. this article was about their phone customer service, but i also really like how quickly and awesomely they respond to email. i wonder what kind of job that would be. would it be fun to respond to people's emails all day?
i always picture them sitting around in one big room, laughing and eating chips or something. but i guess i don't usually send them angry emails, either.
No mother wants to tell her daughter that she can aspire to the presidency only if she snags the most gifted politician of her generation. But Hillary Clinton’s rise to power, unsettling as it is, follows a time-tested pattern for the breaking of gender barriers.
The great feminist promise of a Hillary Clinton presidency amounts to this: If we elect a political wife now, perhaps we won’t have to later.
ouch. but it's worth noting [despite the spin] that women who have political power are often from powerful families. i don't even know what to say about this. i like bill clinton, and i feel like i don't know a lot about hillary - but i think that's more about us than about her. the gender gap is just not going away...
aaaaand that's the quote of the day. i betcha barack's sweeping west wing fans, too. [i can call him barack because that's how he signs his emails to me.]
Meanwhile Barack Obama gives his folks the ecstatic experience. “They said this day would never come. They said our sights were set too high. They said this country was too divided, disillusioned to ever come together around a common purpose,” he told them Thursday night, creating a patriotic lump in every throat in the room.
How could you be 21 and not be for Barack Obama?
okay, so i'm being a little bit ironic. but so is mike huckabee, according to this article about him and obama. and, i mean, chuck norris.
i wish i were a republican, just for the chuck norris.
