two stories for the price of one

First an update on this story about South Butt - South Butt is not going away and giving in, but rather, they're fighting the trademark lawsuit filed by The North Face. I had figured that The North Face's act of filing the lawsuit would bring more attention, and popularity, to South Butt, and yep, sales have increased. I think this is a David vs. Goliath thing, and people like to support the Davids of the world. It'll be interesting to see where this lawsuit goes.

The husband mentioned to me tonight that President Obama's state of the union address is supposed to conflict with the premiere of the last season of "Lost" on February 2nd. Well, a White House spokesperson has given assurances that such is not going to happen. I mean, yeah, he's President of the biggest power in the free world and all that, but he does *not* want to go up against rabid "Lost" fans. They might send the smoke monster after him...
