Yet Another Reason to Shop at Amazon.com

The ABA (that's the American Booksellers Assocation) is attacking Mrs. Laura Bush for touting Amazon in a recent television appearance.

Let's approach this as a simple matter of public relations:

1. The ABA is perhaps the most useless organization in Westchester County, if not the country.
2. Amazon is one of the most useful organizations in the world.
3. Laura Bush has an approval rating of roughly 80%.

If #1 attacks #3 for extolling the virtues of #2, who wins?
