Hi All,

> My jobber here in Ontario recently sent me this information about the ABC
> Literacy Foundation.  Personally the concept of commerical promotion through
> the public library offends me.  It's blatant advertising and in this case, for
> an unhealthy product.  Hasn't everyone heard about the obesity problem with
> North Americans.

> What do others feel?
