a blog with first day stats like this!
Of course, being cute and funny and timely does help...
I was celebrating the Prell firing at KIRO last week. I stick by my words - he was horrible at a news/talk station (as was Tony Ventrella, who wasn't willing to take a side of an issue and stand by it).
I think his talent lies elsewhere, and I would encourage all of you to check out his open letter to his listeners over at Blatherwatch. He would fit in far better over at Progressive Talk 1090, or the Buzz or any other station. KIRO's just a bit too serious for a personality like Mr. Prell.
one of these in High School (or rather, my Dad could've used one of these on me when I was in High School).

I've been having an on-again-off-again problem with my Treo, and I had done everything I could think of to fix it (including the fabled "hard reset", which errases everything on the Treo and restores it to factory-new settings, etc). I didn't want to sit on hold with customer service for a half an hour, so I found some time to stop by one of their mall kiosks - hoping that I would be able to get some one-on-one customer service.
Instead they dialed a number and handed me a phone - and I ended up waiting on hold and being on the phone for half an hour in the middle of a mall, instead of in the comfort of my own home. They had dialed the same exact customer service number I could've called! Oh well - they're shipping me a new (or at least refurbished) phone in the next couple of days.
