I just heard something truly rare, an excellent report on NPR's Morning Edition. Kristin Gillespie (and I couldn't find the spelling so please understand, it's radio) had a report about slave labor in the garment industry in Jordan.

When the industry official was asked about the obscenely horrible working conditions he said that it wasn't what they wanted but that it was what the American Market forced on them. He used the magic phrase "everyday low prices". Please go to their website to see if it's available in audio, it isn't as of this hour.

Please NPR, more of this and less of Inskeep giving the Republican talking points. Even Juan Williams wasn't doing that this morning.

How about this slogan Everyday low prices means everyday slave labor.
