I have a friend who works for LL Bean taking phone orders from their catalogs. He personally took two calls this weekend from people who are boycotting Beans because they advertise on CBS. Supposedly his two calls were two out of hundreds fielded by Bean's employees since Rathergate. LL Bean put up a special notice telling employees to forward such calls to PR. It is an interesting fallout I did not consider. It is an amazing fall from grace, isn't it?

My friend explained how one conversation went. "We both agreed that Rather is an idiot...but there was another employee sitting beside me getting really mad because she was obviously a hippy granola type."
