Advertising

Ugh. I really don't like that ads are being run that market to kids. We don't have tv to reduce the marketing that comes into our house. I hope that the ads to kids on KPL will be few and far between.

The Orbitz ad, while I didn't like it, at least it was marketed to adults.

As of market close yesterday, Sirius XM stock is worth 13 cents a share, sadly up from a low of 11 cents. But it's been overall steadily dropping. To be honest, the company is running on nothing and barring a miracle, will probably go under in 2009.

I'm sure he ads are a desperate last-ditch effort to save themselves.... which we'd all like!

Mark -

Of course. I so wish there was another way -- kids' musicians accepting sponsors just to make it, XMKids taking commercials just to make it.

Sure, but I really can't stand marketing to kids (I refuse to buy character stuff if I can help it). I'll live with the infrequent and hope the marketing doesn't grow beyond my comfort level.
