    Default No coke at Democratic Convention

    Oh, the sacrifices of corporate sponsorship. The Democratic National Convention at the Pepsi Center is officially a no Coke zone.

    After Tuesday's festivities, a senior official helping to organize the convention shared an amusing anecdote: earlier in the day, volunteers who had been provided box lunches and soft drinks were prevented from entering the arena due to a rule banning outside food and drink.

    Convention staff were upset; the vending operations at the arena weren't running and the volunteers needed something to eat during the day. So reps from the Pepsi Center were consulted and a rule was set: the volunteers could bring their lunches, with one exception -- absolutely no Coca Cola products would be permitted inside the Center.

    And if they'd had it at a hotel ballroom, they could have any drink they wanted. They chose Pepsi Center, ergo they serve Pespi. Really not a crisis situation.

    It's like when the Olympics were held in Atlanta back in 1996. Atlanta is the HQ for Coca-Cola and a Pepsi couldn't be found for miles. Such is the life surrounding corporate sponsorship.

    The whole campaign has been about lobbyist money, special interests, corporations getting rich at the expense of the workers, etc.


    yes I realize that this isn't world ending news, I just thought it was a funny illustration of how corporations are entrenched in our lives.

    This place is so nice and friendly today

    It's that way everywhere, I'm not surprised.

    If you work at Nike and show up wearing anything that is from a competitor you are asked to go home and change. If you see someone that doesn't work there wearing Adidias shoes that person is seriously glared at. I've even heard stories of execs. wearing Rockport shoes and being sent home b/c Rockport is owned by Adidias. If you work at Nike you should buy Cole Haan, who is owned by Nike - at least that's how they look at it.
