President Barack Obama has ignited a spirit of service amongst the American people!
If you are still unaware of how you can involve yourself below you can get your self signed up on Obama's service site that will allow you to be in the loop on all of the service initiative in your community.
"Barnes & Noble would like to publicly apologize for what happened in our Coral Gables, Florida store. We believe that a customer played a cruel joke and placed an inappropriate title in the front window of our store, where we were featuring books written by or about President Obama. We want to assure our customers that the book placed by someone other than our booksellers was never intended to be included in our display and was removed as soon as we became aware of the situation. We are looking into it and are taking the steps necessary so that it does not happen again. From time to time customers will move titles from one area of the store to another. In this particular case, we do not condone whatever message may have been intended with the placement of this title in our Presidential display. It certainly was not part of our merchandising and we regret that we didn’t see the placement of this title immediately."
Mary Ellen Keating, Spokesperson
Barnes & Noble, Inc.
So it has come to my attention that Barnes and Noble has joined the group of Ignorant people who have yet to grasp the idea that with or without them CHANGE is occurring!
The Coral Gables, FL location had the below picture as a recent window display......mmmmm
They are so on the BAN list now!
