Kerry Eggers comes through with a marvelous article this morning with the aid of one Kevin Pritchard. It's absolutely worth a read.
Also Dwight Jaynes weighs in on the logo/school issue. I realize that the small bit of controversy is what's fueling the latter story but I hope we all remember a couple things:
- The bigger story is that the Blazers are donating the floors. YES! That is exactly what they should be doing.
- I hope the no-logo folks remember that for years I stared at a Pepsi machine every day, at least twice a day, when I went to high school. And college. Also I drank name-branded orange juice out of little containers there. Also they sold world-famous candy bars and chips. Their logos were all over that lunch room. It didn't hurt me a bit. I still don't like Pepsi that much. I think I'd object to the "About.com Chalkboard" and perfume inserts in every third page of the math book but this doesn't meet those criteria.
