Commercials that make me want to NOT buy their product

My friend Rex prefaces all of his disquieting statements (which is to say, all of his statements) with the phrase, “I don’t mean this bad, but…” You’ve heard of pre-paid phone cards and pre-arranged marriages? This is sort of like a pre-confession; he’s asking for absolution in advance. If history is any indicator, when Rex begins, “I don’t mean this bad” you are about to hear a criticism that is equal parts hilarious and horrifying.

Government openness is important

One of the fundamental lessons of the 9/11 tragedy was that our government carried a share of blame for the failure to stop the attacks. Not because it was asleep at the switch or ignorant of the dangers that Al Qaeda posed, but because the agencies charged with our safety did not share what they knew, either up and down the chain of command or with each other. The attacks were preventable with shared information.
