Stupidest corporation of the century so far

Robodialing the people on your "Do Not Call" list -- to tell them that you can't call them so they're missing great offers!

Truly, where are the Darwin Awards for corporations? Should we call them Schumpeter Awards?

(Hat tip to Oregon Media Insiders blog.)

Happens every year. Weather improves. Sun-starved Salemites seek sensuous, salubrious solar sensations. So they get outdoors. :^)

But accidents go up. While blood donations go down. :^(

It's important: if you are eligible to give blood -- and most people are -- do it. The life you save may be someone you know. And, even if not, it's someone important to someone.
