I am on my way there now! This* is probably as close as I will get to Paris in the immediate future. MB is simply the best of the best! The croissants are to die for no matter which kind you get. Also, the baguettes, warmed or not, are wonderful with dinner, plain or with PB&J!

I like buying locally, but have you ever driven across town only to learn that they don't have your size, color, style, etc.? The biggest difference is that with local stores, you buy what they have and with online, you get what you want, delivered.
One example is buying an HDMI cable. Go to Staples and spend $27 - $44 depending on length or get one from Amazon for $3 - $12. Can you even buy an electronic book locally? I went to a local store last week to buy a shirt on sale. They didn't have it so they offered to order it. I was charged tax, shipping costs and tax on shipping.
But, in the case of Amazon, it was simply easier (more expedient) to place blame in support of the campaign to send them packing.
I don't have a problem with the iPad incident.
OK, it wasn't about slavery!
It was, instead, about states' rights, the great concept under which Georgia ethnically cleansed its state of the Cherokee Nation in the early part of the 1800's. It was also the theory under which South Carolina would quit the Union if the Feds outlawed the owning of slaves.
When desegregation became the law of the land, South Carolina put a confederate flag on the state house as a sign of defiance. When the KKK marched in Charleston in the 1980's, they must have carried 50 or more confederate flags. Now, a confederate flag flies on the statehouse grounds. However people view the flag, this is a flag of the last slaveholding government on this land.
If you have a special game, it will most probably be on. If not, just tell Bobby and he will do back flips to find it. (I realize that not everybody cares about the Rice/Tulane baseball game.) This place has wireless internet, an attentive staff and good food. As a bonus, Bobby has empathy for those of you whose teams have a way to go.
