Subject "food stamps" - guess who is making big money on them (and outsourcing the call center)

The More Americans That Go On Food Stamps The More Money JP Morgan Makes

In the video posted below, JP Morgan executive Christopher Paton admits that this is "a very important business to JP Morgan" and that it is doing very well.

So what happens if you have a problem with your food stamp debit card?

Well, you call up a JP Morgan service center. When you do this, there is a very good chance that you are going to be helped by a JP Morgan call center employee in India.

That's right - it turns out that JP Morgan is saving money by "outsourcing" food stamp customer service calls to India.


I knew it!! (sort of ) Colts have interviewed Tressel twice

Report: Tressell has interviewed with Colts TWICE

On Friday, my CBSSports.com colleague Ryan Wilson asked the question: “Would the Colts interview Jim Tressel for a coaching job?”

Apparently the answer to that question is yes. Not only that, but it’s a resounding yes.

As WBNS-TV in Columbus is reporting (via the Cleveland Plain Dealer), Tressel already has had two interviews for the chance to replace Jim Caldwell, and the second one occurred Friday when owner Jim Irsay flew to Sarasota, Fla., where Tressel has a home, to talk with the former Ohio State coach.

Either way, this decision should be done seven days from now.

Saw the first two Obama ads that I have seen ---on the Food Network today

Nasty rainy day here in Richmond. We have the Food Network on as our little girl is working on crafts and mom and I are doing household stuff.

Good ad. I have passed by it twice since 2:00.

Nice group to target.

Here is the ad.

Anyone see something missing from this SI photo (p.59 of the last issue)?

That is Jordan in high school about 1980 or 1981.


"Trash," the former Speaker of the House of Representatives called it, as he was asked to respond to media reports at the very moment when he's gaining support and has pulled into a neck-and-neck contest in the state with Mitt Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts.

'Adios, Mofo' - Willie Geist's hilarious send off of (p)Rick Perry

Voting... on a Saturday? what a novel idea

Do they question anyone's residence?
Do they tell people they have to pay all their city bills before voting?
Do they post fliers with the wrong date?
Do they cage voters?
