Their minions were (still are?) forced to answer phone calls with their slogan “higher standards”. I laughed for a good half-minute when I first heard that. For my next version, it’s a tossup between that and Target. This is a great map, and if I have your permission, I would like to include it in a powerpoint dotbig reviews presentation for my company. Is it permissible for me to use, and is there a way that I could edit it in order to make certain states pop-out as they are discussed. Agree with those suggesting J&J for NJ, instead of Campbell’s.
