And These Are The Folks Who Are Going to Build the Convention Center Hotel?

Posted By on Thu, Aug 13, 2009 at 7:29 PM

On Wednesday, Caleb Hannan reported that MDHA had picked Marriott to build the new hotel that will sit next to the convention center.

On that very same day, the world learned that Marriott decided that a woman who was raped in one of the parking garages in Stamford, Connecticut, at gun point had (and I wish I were making this up) "failed to exercise due care for her own safety and the safety of her children and proper use of her senses and facilities."

That's right. Rather than just arguing that her rape was unforeseeable and beyond their control, they're blaming her and, on top of that, calling her a shitty mother.

Charming. So glad we're giving a huge, lucrative contract to these fine corporate citizens.
