Mexican call centers staffed with deported Mexicans with American accents

I can attest to the fact that some people calling into a call center only want to speak to someone who sounds like them. It’s not just native American speakers who ask to speak to an American. I’ve had people ask me, in perfect English, to speak to someone who speaks Spanish. I hate when this happens.

Statue of Hitler kneeling in prayer placed in former Warsaw Jewish ghetto

Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan created a statue of Adolf Hitler kneeling in prayer and then placed the statue in the middle of a former Jewish ghetto in Warsaw, Poland. The ghetto at one time was the home of 254,000 Jews as they awaited transportation to the Treblinka death camp. To say that some people have a problem with this being placed in such a historically significant site is an understatement.

Jehovah’s Witnesses Jesus

I came home the other day to discover a tract attached to my front door by the Hagerstown Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses. The tract is inviting me to their special hall on April 17 to learn how I can benefit from Jehovah’s Witnesses Jesus taking away the sin of the world. On the invitational tract is artwork that I assume is to represent Jehovah’s Witnesses Jesus.
