Ordering the courts

A hallmark of U.S. culture: Everybody’s entitled to their own opinion. Like the gentleman who wrote us the other day to complain that the Orlando Magic weren’t giving guard J.J. Redick enough playing time, and could we please do something about it. Sir, we’re sorry, but we only bought rights to the name that goes […]

Hip to be satisfied

Quixtar ranked fifth in ForeSee’s annual index of online retailers, tied with Old Navy and Apple.

We were pleased to see James Prichard’s corporate background story hit the wires this afternoon. One of the things that we constantly struggle with…is the complexity of this company, its business model, its product offerings, and its personalities. And that’s without the extra noise and controversy that’s been kicked up around the Michigan governor’s race. […]
