And now for something completely different (Thanks Monty Python!)
Thanks to Kim at The Inadvertent Farmer for tipping me off to this one. It is just now making the news.
Just in time for the holiday season, Amazon.com has lost my business. They are, citing freedom of speech, refusing to stop sales of "The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure"- a book that is essentially a how-to guide for child molestation. They have received hundreds, if not thousands, of messages and emails of protest but are still holding firm. I for one, will take my business somewhere with a better sense of social responsibility. I urge you to also use your dollars wisely when you shop. Kim said it so much more eloquently in her post. I urge you to go read it.
UPDATE: The book is no longer on the Amazon site. Hopefully that means that the public outcry worked. The furor this caused was very bad publicity for them- and just at a time of year when they probably do a LOT of business.
