Alright, I don’t like to get political, but the news last week in regards to Citi Bank has got me a bit hot under the collar! I know times are tough and it seems downright wrong for people to lose their jobs just weeks before Christmas, but I understand that that is just the way it goes some times. I have friends that work at Citi and the layoffs become a lot more personal when they affect people you know. The thing that got me so upset was after the 306 billion dollar bail out, people I know were looking at getting laid-off and Citi was contracting with the Rose Bowl…OMG! I don’t know how much Citi paid to “present the Rose Bowl”, but it seems like there might be a few families that would appreciate their jobs back instead. I know marketing is expensive and necessary, but this one seems a little too much too soon!

Not to mention the bowls sponsored by AT&T, GMAC, and Capital One, all to some degree doing the exact same thing . . .
