Don't know if any of you caught the same segment on NPR radio this morning that I did, but Sam Pocker was on. He writes a blog titled Retail Anarchy and has just compiled his writings into a book by the same name.
He voices the same kind of outrage I feel so often when it comes to the mass marketing of SO many useless and even HARMFUL products. I just signed up for his blog and am looking forward to his insights. My position takes his rant a step further...why not harness the power of marketing for GOOD and shape our wants and desires such that it isn't a worthless TWINKIE we salivate and wolf down, but fresh fruits and veggies?!?!
