BE AMERICAN, ORDER AN APPETIZER
Restaurants Trying to 'Help America Turn the Tables' National Restaurant Association reported that places where people dine and drink lost about $1 billion in sales in September and October in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks. The association is undertaking a marketing campaign meant "to communicate how essential restaurants are to the economy and to people's lives." (from today's NY Times).
Here we go again - another business lobbying group trying to make people feel un-American if they don't spend as lavishly as they did pre-September 11. All this sleeze makes me want to take a shower.
