Things I Want (Or Need) To Know

  • When the Today show runs a live via satellite interview with real people who participated in some story, couldn’t they possibly find articulate real people?  Wouldn’t that make for a better program?

  • According to JD Powers Associates, the two auto makers who have the best quality across their entire brand are Jaguar and Buick.  Does that say good things about Jaguar and Buick quality, or bad things about the accuracy of JD Powers’ survey?

  • I truly don’t understand SPAM as a marketing tool.  How does annoying someone every day make them want to buy your product?  If I order a three-month supply of prescription drugs over the Internet, why would I need to order another three-month supply tomorrow, and the day after tomorrow, and the day after that?  Do you care that free shipping ends tomorrow when you know it begins again Saturday?  If I ask you not to e-mail me, why do you e-mail me to confirm that I don’t want to get your e-mail?  Don’t the people who do this know you can set your e-mail program to dump that stuff in the trash.

  • In this media intensive day and age, what’s the point of a wax museum?

  • When you are turning on to a highway with four or more lanes, you’re supposed to end up in the lane that’s going in your direction and closest to where you came from.  So if you turn left, you’re supposed to end up next to the center line of the road and if you turn right you’re supposed to turn near the curb.  You flunked your road test if you didn’t do that.  These days, if you count on people doing that, you’ll have an accident.  So, could everybody please do it right at least when there’s another vehicle coming from the opposite direction and turning with you?
