Econo Lodge is a chain, so Pete's friends should be able to find one where they can stay. I don't know of any with an indoo r pool though. What's an indoo?

Sorry to resurrect the dead, but I loved this email. I really wonder why this guy thought to send this to Snopes. He's referring to a show that was on HBO this summer about the Bunny Ranch, a brothel in Nevada. Airforce Amy is one of the prostitutes! A real patriot if I ever saw one. [lol]

Jen - Not that I watched the show or anything. [Wink]

Correct me if I'm wrong, but last year, wasn't snopes selling clear glass or plastic containers with cats in them? Perhaps this person is just confused.

Hmm, I forget, is this rumor about Target or Wal-Mart? I've heard the "don't allow your employees to say Merry Christmas" one about Wal-Mart (from my Mother, no less.)

For the record, I am American, White, and Heterosexual, although not Christian, and was hired by Wal-Mart. I've also seen bell-ringers outside the stores. Regarding the "can't say Merry Christmas" rumor, I think Snopes has a pretty good page on it. However, let me also say, in my short time working for them I was NEVER told not to say Merry Christmas. From what I can gather about the rumor, some stores were suggesting Happy Holidays, in order to appeal to a wider variety of customers, but never forced anyone not to say Merry Christmas.

Not sure why I'm responding to such a loony email in the first place. :x

Comment: After reading the message from fellow Marines about a
Marine recruiter being escorted from the premises of
the shopping center, I for one will not use Randhurst
shopping center businesses for any of my shopping.
This is a total disrespect for our troops and what
they do for our country. Recruiting is not soliciting.
I am a Marine (72-80) and I support all our troops and
this action by the management of the shopping center
is wrong, and should be corrected.
I wiould not endorse this shopping center to anyone.
The Marine Corps has the Toys for Tots campaign going
on at this time, and I imagine the management of this
shopping center would consider that a form of
solicitation. All people in management need to wake up
and smell the roses, the world will pass you by and
you will not have real friends.
Semper fi
I hope the management realizes their mistake and at
the very least apologize to the recruiter they treated
so rudely and disrespectfully.

Comment: Cathy, this is an urban legends site called Snopes. Anytime
someone sends me a forwarded health alert message, like the "microwave
alert" article you sent, I always check this site for its validity. Most
people who send these things do not realize that the alert has been
circulating in one form or another, sometimes for decades.

As you can see from this site, although the "microwave alert" is important
and should make us think, it is based on a fairly unsubstantiated claimed
by one so-called expert. I will be more careful, however, just in case...

and it's reference to it's the origin. This makes me as a user of your
fine product, much happier! I will only buy Del Monte or W Ketchup after
the knowledge of Heinz/Kerry connection was announced, and was concerned
about your products'lineage.
Rest assured I will continue to use and promote your product every chance
I can.

Comment: I have to say I'm very impressed with your policy on deployed
soldiers. I was deployed, as a nurse in the Army. Took care of all the
soldiers in ICU at Landstuhl, Germany. They came to us about 48-72 hours
post injury. My company, HCA Healthcare, didn't pay my salary which didn't
really upset me as I am an Officer and make a decient salary in the Army,
but when I returned I accidently found out that I should have accumulated
PTO (paid time off) while I was gone. No one told me. I pushed and got all
they owed me. I've been there over 20yrs and accumlate 20+ hours each
month.

I want to thank you for what you do for the soldiers. I know many who have
had a terrible time when they came back from defending our country.
