The only tools you'll ever need!
Recently, our very own captainfish tipped me to this intriguing blog post, written by CHANNELLOCK® president William S. DeArment regarding the direction our country is taking. I strongly encourage you to read the whole thing, so I won't reproduce it all here—but here's a little taste:
We need LEADERSHIP and true statesmen.
If you have any candidates in your part of the world that represent these thoughts: Support them! Help them! Put a sign in your yard! DO SOMETHING for them!
Regaining control of our country starts with this November's elections. I hope you will be there.
Please do read the rest, it's well worth it.
Anyway, my instinctive reaction was to shoot a note off to CHANNELLOCK's Public Relations department to gauge their take on this excellent piece—The response to which I just received this morning.
I'll post the whole press release below the fold, the takeaway statement from it is:
The responses we have received from our recent American Blue Newsletter have been overwhelmingly favorable and positive.
What can I say? I will be rushing home to throw away each and every tool I own, so I can run right back out to the store and replace it with a CHANNELLOCK®–brand masterpiece.
And I hope you'll consider doing the same!
