Here's Why

If you've been reading, you know I've got a penchant for protest, writing letters to the companies that deserve the benefit of my feedback.

Well, they ought to know.

Where did this begin? What gave me this sense of entitlement, the expectation of justice and fairness... or at least what I paid for?

"Your Aunt Myrtle knitted you a lemon!"

In the essay that got me into Oberlin, I credited Ralph Nader's appearance on Sesame Street. A consumer advocate is a person in your neighborhood. When I grew up, that's what I wanted to be.

Although I don't know what I was doing watching Sesame Street in 1988... I might have been a little old for that.
