Today for lunch, Kelly and I went to a Wendy's near here that just opened a few days ago. Besides there being about ten staff members present (it was 3pm and there weren't many customers), it was odd to see a half-dozen Wendy's execs checking the place out. They had neckties and file folders and were asking questions of the two managers on duty, then they sat down at a table and started taking notes. Wendy's need to do this sort of thing more often, because service was excellent. The workers scrambled to complete our orders very quickly. Twice, a very polite worker came to our table to refill our drinks for us. Another one even brought by a basket of starlite mints before we left. I was seriously thinking about going up to the register and asking if I could have twenty bucks, just to see if they'd give it.

Keeping the Mother Tongue in West Virginia

West Virginia Makes English Its Official Language: (link) When I first saw this headline, I thought it was a "humorous" story about how someone realized the state had forgotten since its inception to declare a language and it now finally got around to it, like how Ohio didn't actually become a legal state until 1953.
