Money as a Message

I ran into this site while just cruising around looking for something else. What struck me was the power in messaging money. Everyone wants it, everyone works for it, everyone wants to spend it. So it means a built in audience.

would everyone get it? Probably not. But It's still getting a message out for people to think about. Guerilla like, I love it. Subversive even.

Domino's Pizza is owned by a Hypocrite

"NAPLES, Fla. - If Domino's Pizza founder Thomas S. Monaghan has his way, a new town being built in Florida will be governed according to strict Roman Catholic principles, with no place to get an abortion, pornography or birth control." Yes, He wants to make Catholic Town.

But I bet they will Still Sell junk food like pizza. But then maybe peddling nutritionally excessive food isn't a sin. I wonder if the pope enjoys Dominos? According to Wikipedia, Pope John Paul thought we needed saints who did. But when the low wage pizza delivery guy who screws up your order (personal experience), then runs over people delivering your pizza's, their will be nothing for them to do to entertain themselves when their off work. Maybe they can go to church.

And, they will still most likely deliver pizza's to the world, spreading only waist-lines and not bible verses.

The story says:
"The town of Ave Maria is being constructed around Ave Maria University, the first Catholic university to be built in the United States in about 40 years. Both are set to open next year about 25 miles east of Naples in southwestern Florida."
It goes on read that the owner believes "all of history is just one big battle between good and evil. I don't want to be on the sidelines...". Instead, he just wants to deliver them both pizza. Feeding the good and the bad equally. The president's brother even likes the idea, at least so the story goes.

Is it me, or is this just crazy? I wonder what the Pope thinks.
