What Was That?

Was that REALLY a commercial for Orbitz? Are you kidding me? I had heard of rumors of commercials on XM, but this is the first that I've encountered one. I'm really not impressed. Yes, it was disguised as a truly worthy cause (visit the historical sites associated with MLK Jr. -- and for that I don't need Orbitz since we live in Atlanta), but it was still an advertisement. We don't have tv, we don't listen to commercial radio, the girls have very little peer pressure in terms of material goods. We've avoided much of the influence of the invasive marketing, and I'm not going to be happy if XM starts marketing to my kids.

Addendum 7:17pm: And now a commercial for flu shots?? Ugh.
