Funny math from Tropicana next?

I was recently on the way to work stopped off to grab a quick bottle of
orange juice to drink on the long drive in. I wasn't too choosy and
grabbed some Tropicana 100% Juice orange juice. After I was on my way I

carried it with me so I could contact Tropicana and let them know about
the bad bottle and possibly batch.

The medical community beats the RIAA to the future

Good business practice tells us what is good for our customer is good for our bottom line. Sensing the winds of change, and a growing backlash against medical professionals who take bribes err incentives for prescribing certain drugs to suckers errr patients some doctors are proposing a radical change.

Publix takes time out for good customer service

My wife and I shop at Publix, a lot! We happen to like the store and unlike WalMart they treat you like a human not just a change purse. We have had issues with the ATM outside the store, we use it because there is no fee for my bank when we do. In the past its had a lot of issues but recently its gotten very bad. So I took time to write Publix at their website. Here is the majority of what I wrote.

I understand Paul may tie his livelihood to Windows however thats a very narrow mindset.
