Jan 24th 2013 10:32AM We (my wife and I) are at the opposite end of the spectrum. As loyal fliers of Delta, we built up over one million miles, were promised lifetime Silver status, and now, that is being taken away from us next year. Almost every time we fly on Delta, something bad happens (delays, schedule changes, baggage problems, etc.) and we feel totally betrayed by this airline.
In addition, when using frequent flyer miles for travel, Delta is totally uncompetitive, often required DOUBLE the miles of United Airlines for the same itinerary.
We agree with the notion of giving benefits to those who fly Delta often, but reject being cheated out of promised benefits because we fly less often
Mar 5th 2011 9:35AM Any pricing survey that only includes a dozen or so items should be totally IGNORED by consumers. Any price survey that has less than 100 items is not a valid comparison. Picking a few non essential items instead of the BASICS (milk, Cheerios, Crest Toothpaste, etc.) weakens the entire process of price comparison. Including a specialty item like Nicorette also lowers the credibility of any survey.
NONE of the items included in this so called survey include a single product of importance, or in the top 300 items sold in a grocery store. Both Target and Wal Mart carry tens of thousands of items in their stores, and to make a judgment of who is lower priced takes a much larger sampling of products than this survey.
Feb 19th 2011 10:07AM As a former grocery managment employee, I have NEVER read an artlcle about the industry filled with more incorrect information that the one by Mr. Crowe.
Really don't know where to begin.......perhaps by having readers know the industry average profit margins are a penny on the dollar, a bit over 1%, not the 2.5% quoted.
Similar wrong numbers are shown for nearly every single category mentioned. Magazines at 90% markup? No way!
This article has NO CREDIBILITY and should be pulled from the web. The auther should be ashamed of himself for publishing out and out falsehoods about the grocery industry. By what authority does he back up his alleged claims?
Jan 17th 2011 4:53PM RCRD......With respect for your views,carefully and slowly read the article again. Jordan is not being criticized for his athletic achievements, but for his lack of involvment in social issues. If the author is incorrect, would you mind listing those projects and groups he has supported or sponsored with his tens of millions of dollars?
I agree with MJ's influence in the world of sports. What is his social influence in the world is the issue with this article
Nov 24th 2010 4:00PM What? Jerry Sloan, the longest tenured coach does not count?
Nov 23rd 2010 10:01AM First of all, Brett might not be able to retire and go back home. His wife is waiting in the doorway with a seven iron.(Erin was entitled to use a driver on Tiger)
Second...who among the Farve critics would leave SIX MILLION bucks on the table and walk away, even though the honorable thing to do is for Farve to head south for home TODAY and patch up his marriage. His problem in football and apparently in life is that he thinks of nobody else but himself, and as a selfish, self centered person does not care about others (i.e.helping Aaron develop, attending training camp, etc).
Third...what sports fan can respect or believe the opinion of a small time writer(Graziano)who spends an entire article bashing a legend.
Fourth........it is easy to be an expert with another persons money. The Vikings stand to lose a bundle of bucks on both the Childress and the Farve decision. Where were all these so called experts last summer when these decisons were made? Most Viking fans hoped as I did, that Farve had one last stand in him, and with some added depth, especially on the offensive line and defensive backfield, would make another run. I was not smart enough to see the downfall coming.............were any of these keyboard coaches? Fifth..........The real victim in this matter is the new coach, Frazier, who has been told to start Farve and begin his coaching career with one hand (or both) tied behind his back.Frazier is a good man, in all respects, and does not need an anchor around is neck to begin his career as a head coach. Sixth...If the high school reporter (Graziano) had made one point, without all the other crap.......that Farve should make way for the rebuilding to begin TODAY............that would have been enough said.
Nov 11th 2010 3:13PM Fay,
There are fewer and fewer of us that remember the old days at Sick Stadium. Glad you are among them. One tiny correction.......Leo never said "over the fence." He always extended the version of "back, back, back," then paused (to add suspense for the listener) and then shouted out.."it's over."
We had some old recording of Leo baseball broadcasts, but for the life of me, I cannot find those wonderful memories. Thanks for being one of few who remember those days.
Nov 11th 2010 9:47AM Sorry to have left out the letter s...back, back, back and it's over.
Wanted to correct my error before being vilified by others.
Nov 11th 2010 9:44AM Two Seattle announcers will be remembered for as long as baseball exists.
1. Dave Niehaus.........for all the reasons mentioned above, AND.....
2. Leo Lassen.........Any Seattle Rainier fan will remember.."back, back, back.......and it over," when a home run was hit at the old Sick Stadium in Seattle. Brings back memories of Lou Novikoff and other old timers.
We salute the two greatest baseball announcers in Seattle history.
Nov 9th 2010 11:28AM I believe Jerry wants to produce a winner in Dallas. I also believe that he feels he is NOT the problem. (did you notice how defensive Jerry became when an unknown lady reporter asked him about his role in the downfall...go girl.....great courage shown).
Jerry admitted being in "denial," not over his role, but in waiting for wins to come. He just does not get it............and when fans are no longer willing to pay horrific prices to attend the "Debacle in Dallas"..only then might Jerry do what most know needs doing.....get a GM and coach who have authority to run the football program in Dallas.
