The small print. When I went to the expo for the Marathon/ Mini Marathon, I was handed a $500.00 gift card for something called "Red Star Worldwear". The card says, "Why? We want to create a buzz for our new products... so for a limited time we're giving away gift cards to select active lifestyle consumers". The small print, however, says that they charge a "Service Fee" that's not covered by the gift card, which pays for "1st Class postage, general overhead and profit, free exchange program and processing & handling services".
So... They're selling sunglasses, and charging a fee that covers their costs and returns them a profit. What exactly is the "gift"?

Nursing Student Waived First Amendment Right

Nursing student blogs about a birth she witnessed in nursing school. Court holds that since she signed a confidentiality agreement, she has waived any First Amendment rights.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. - A former University of Louisville nursing student waived her rights to free speech by signing an honor code that included a non-disclosure requirement, so she can't collect damages for being dismissed from school over a blog post, a federal judge ruled Monday.

Who's better? Loretta Lynn or Reba McEntire? The debate caused a hammer attack, which ended with a rolling-pin rejoinder.
