Charlie's Show Prep #164
It's baaaack!!! Charlie, I'm sure your show hasn't been the same since I took my unannounced break. Sort of like your unannounced vacations. ;-)
- Whole Foods opens their Milwaukee store today. The Journal Sentinel has 1, 2, 3, and 4 stories and/or sidebars. There's also a collection of videos. It's a full-blown Whole Foods commercial. It's no surprise the supermarket is advertising on the Journal Sentinel's webpage. Being the cynic that I am I'm sure such great coverage must come cheap. Macy's recently came into Milwaukee without the massive coverage. Could the difference be Macy's doesn't market with newspaper coupons?
- A Milwaukee Muslim leader, Othman Atta, decided use the Pope Benedict kerfuffle to take a cheap shot at the "Christian right-wing."
- Sep. 15 was a record-breaking day for the U.S. Treasury. $85.8 billion was collected in taxes, 20% more than the year before. While it's more evidence of economic strength only the green eyeshade, balanced budget crowd should be really happy. Us economic freedom lovers want to see tax receipts go down because that means people are paying fewer taxes.
- Other than the cost ($50,000-60,000) a 100-mpg car is feasible. Yes, and I could fly into space too if I had $20 million lying around.
