I remember in the very early days of Amazon, the Scene ran an article about how it might be cutting into the revenue of local retailers. There was a quote from Tower Records manager John Kerlikowske, something to the effect of, "We really don't see that's it's having any impact on us."
I remember looking back over my credit card statements and thinking, "John, buddy, if its ONLY ME, it's cutting into your business." When I look at that big hole on West End where Tower once stood, I get the distinct impression that it wasn't only me.
My office gets a couple of copies of the Tennessean every morning. It's there for anyone to read. Many days no one does. Sometimes I have arrived at work to find that ten people got there ahead of me and they all walked past those copies of Tennessean on the sidewalk without even bothering to pick them up and bring them inside. When people have free access to the print edition and don't read it, what are the odds that they're going to pay for what I suspect will be an inferior online edition?
The lady doth protest too much, methinks.
Okay, I'll be the nerd. Geddy Lee didn't write that. Neil Peart writes their lyrics.
Does anyone else listen to their iPod in the car? Read the wording of the recommendation again very carefully.
You know who else smelled bad, Chris? Soldiers at the battles of Lexington and Concord. I'm sure King George was appalled too.
Steve: Thanks for reminding me of that trip to Breeden's Orchard. I was Rebecca's engineer and co-producer on "Consider This." You made me want to hear that segment (from Nov. 17, 1996!) again, so I figured as long as I was digging it out of the archive, you might like to hear it again too. It's at http://wpln.org/news/ConsiderThis-Apples.m…
