First thing this morning I got this email from Jan Scruggs, CEO of the Vietnam Memorial Wall. He was asking that anyone concerned about an ad depicting the Vietnam Veterans Memorial but in reality listing the names of shops at Tyson’s Corner please contact a reporter at the Washington Examiner.

I sent off a note as did as did Marsh Carter, Chairman of the NY Stock Exchange and a two-tour Vietnam veteran. Carter sent me a note as soon as he contacted the reporter at the Examiner.

I asked many of you to contact the Examiner as well. Not because they were responsible for the ad but because they have the power to put the screws to the folks who did. And that’s exactly what happened. Thank you for writing those notes.

Here’s the follow-up article by the Examiner. Now would you please write a note and thank Michael for doing his job well and for bringing the appropriate attention to this poorly-contrived and executed ad?

Konnie made us dinner last night. She’s really working on those homemaking skills of hers. She made these wonderful pita sandwiches with toasted almonds. That got me to thinking how far would you travel for a good meal? This Minnesota couple are eating their way across America via the FoodNetwork Channel. I don’t know how they have time to watch it, given the amount of time they spend eating and driving.

Asked why they chose to spend their retirement this way, Jane said it was because they’ve lost so many friends over the past few years.

Now that’s my idea of heaven — eat your way there.
