(1) Kodak V1003 10MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom and 2.5" LCD
Description: (click show to see it)
"We, the people, in order to form a more perfect union..." Two hundred
and twenty-one years ago, a group of men met in a hall that didn't even
have central air or a decent sound system, to launch America's
improbable experiment in democracy. Beyond their commitment to liberty,
those guys knew how to write a good opening. That's why I've quoted
them right at the beginning.
But I come before you today
to talk about something else, something that gets at the very root of
what it means to be an American: the right to express yourself through
your consumer purchasing choices. Until now, when it came to digital
cameras, many Americans have been denied that right. A monochromatic
legacy of intolerance has frowned upon any digital cameras that
deviated from the "correct" color palette. And we have reaped a harvest
of resentment, of bitterness, of middle fingers raised and thick,
dripping loogies hocked.
Even as we speak, a little girl in
the inner city will go to bed daring to dream of a pink digital camera.
Veterans who have sacrificed everything for this country are unable to
find the range of camera colors they have fought and died for. A
laid-off factory worker is struggling to choose between various
silver-and-black digital cameras made overseas by the same corporations
that sent his job away, unable even to choose the hue of his demise.
we as a nation face a momentous choice. We can continue to pursue the
old politics of limited camera colors. We can treat the issue as a
sideshow, as fodder for the copywriters and the marketing departments. We can accept a limited view of civic engagement, confined to voting every four years for president, or, occasionally,<a href="http://www.webware.com/html/ww/100/2008/vote_commerce.html?compid=103359"> our favorite web sites</a>.
Or we can assume our historic responsibility and offer the Kodak V1003 10MP Digital Camera in seven different colors, so that every American can choose the color of their dreams.
believe that the promise of America is about more than just 10MP
resolution, 3X optical zoom, and digital image stabilization. It's
about the freedom to make superficial consumer choices in matters of
little actual consequence, and to feel better about ourselves for doing
it. I really wanted to work the phrase "the better angels of our
nature" in here somewhere. Now I have.
So whether you prefer
black, white, coffee, gray, pink, silver, or blue, I ask you to join me
in this historically historic moment of history, that we may all of us
choose the option or opt for the choice that best suits our optional
choices. In closing, I'd like to quote somebody who knew not only how
to reach Americans across ethnic, racial, religious, and species lines
and how to speak to their dreams and fears, but also how to deliver a
good closing line: "Eee-ba-da, eee-ba-da...th-th-th-th-that's all,

A whole generation, a whole lost generation. That Cobain guy has a
lot to answer for. Now it's all Bowie and rock about feelings, but once
upon a time there was music for skinned knees and broken wrists, music
that inspired you to walk it off and try to get that vert a little
higher next time, music that had lyrics you had to decipher like it was
some foreign language, and in a way, it was. What happened to the magic
of triangles and fire and reptile wings and bolts of lightning? Now
every song sounds like Bread hired a top notch guitarist. Is that any
way for a youth culture to rebel? Who ever changed the world from

Those hearty reds got you
through the winter. Hunkered down in the cold, you wrapped their heavy,
comforting flavors around you like a bearskin sleeping bag. They warmed
your insides and delivered a smackdown on Jack Frost. But what now,
with spring here? The sun's staying out longer. Tiny, tentative shoots
of green are on the trees. The Chicago Cubs have not yet been
eliminated from World Series contention. Isn't it time for something a
little lighter - lighter in color, lighter in flavor, lighter in
The sparrow returns Spirals with joy through the air Is it drunk, or what?
Let Epiphany hop on down your
bunny trail. Hippity, hoppity, exquisite springtime flavor's on its
way. Winemaker Eli Parker, who has overseen winemaking at Fess Parker
Winery for years, started Epiphany to let him craft small lots of more
esoteric offerings than usually appear under the Fess Parker label.
This diverse trio has one thing in common: all three possess a
sparkling, refreshing quality perfect for springtime. OK, and they're
all made from grapes. And they all come in bottles. So that's three
things they have in common.
Dig, little chipmunk Unearth the nuts you hid - wait: Do chipmunks do that?
There's the distinctive
Epiphany 2006 "Inspiration", a white blend of Roussanne, Marsanne,
Viognier, and Grenache Blanc. It entices nostril and tongue alike with
notes of Asian pear, jasmine, apricot, guava, nectarine, honeydew,
beeswax, and vanilla. There's the Epiphany 2006 Rodney's Vineyard
Grenache Ros�, with aromatics as beautiful as its lovely deep-pink
color. Strawberry, cherry, watermelon...if wine was Jolly Ranchers, it'd
taste like this. And there's also the Epiphany 2006 Goodchild Vineyard
Pinot Gris. In January, its brightly acidic flavors of light citrus,
melon, apricot, and pear would have seemed a cruel mockery. But the
March palate is only too ready for it. And with reason: the 2004 and
2005 vintages both scored 90 points from Wine Enthusiast.
I've had just about Enough of this winter crap You know what I mean?
So as you emerge, dazed and
starving, from your igloo, reach for this Epiphany three-pack. These
wines glisten like sunshine on snowmelt, soar like a kite in the March
breeze, and surprise like an over-the-hill free-agent pitcher who wins
a spot in the rotation.
