Some things advertisers do to get your attention can be really annoying. It works too. For instance, Crest toothpaste. Why? Because their online advertisements on MSNBC begin with a painful volume level that slowly drops to a normal level. They got my attention and I will never buy another tube of Crest.
Not quite so painful but also annoying is the current purple background. It makes things hard to read. I don't know who is responsible for it. But it disappoints me.
I really like Daily Kos, the SEIU and PPP.

GOP budget plan would cut Pell Grants
Well, that's what's on my mind. What's on yours?
Flash: The purple disappeared before I pushed publish. Now that is clout.
