The Media!!!!

CBS ran a report last night that said the oil prices aren’t being driven up by the conflict in Libya… It’s actually based on investor speculation. Oh… That’s comforting.

Apparently the media just likes to run with things and really not check the source in which they come from.

 Ashley and five of her friends got free tickets to attend last Thursday’s show . . . the one where PIA TOSCANO was shown the door.  When the girls got there, three of her skinny friends were given sweet, front-row seats. But Ashley was not invited to join them.  In fact, she says a staffer told her, quote, “Oh no, you’re just too big, too heavy to be in front!”  Instead, she was assigned a seat in the very back row.

Was it right for American Idol to make Ashley sit in the back?

Imagine going into your favorite store and asking to try something on and they say “sure… but it will cost ya.”  That is what many stores in the land down under are doing.

The retailers are coming up with what they are calling “try-on” charges because they complain that people are coming to the store see if they like the merchandise and then going home and purchasing the item on the internet.  The charges in some cases are $50. If you end up buying the merchandise then the fee is waived.

The retailers say they can’t compete with the tax free prices that the online retailers can offer.

Is this something we could start seeing in the states?
