The gall. Trying to indoctrinate our children in our schools.
Here's an email I received today from my son's school.

Good evening, this is xxxxxxx from the middle school with an important message. Papa Johns has agreed to donate to xxxxxxx Middle School 20% of all orders placed either online or by phone tonight through Thursday, November 15. Just go to www.papajohns.com or call and use the promo code xxx. Please look at the attached flyer.  Thank you very much for your support and Go Dolphins.
I found a local pizzeria that suits us just fine. The owner doesn't shoot his mouth off or whine about the cost of doing business. After all, it's just dough, cheese, and some readily available toppings. It's not rocket surgery.

UPDATE: And now we know why...

Papa John's Sued for Sending 500,000 Unsolicited Cell Phone Spam Emails

So, what better way to get around spamming laws than to get schools to spam for him. 20% off? Probably about what he paid OnTime4U to send unsolicited text messages on Papa John's behalf to cell phones advertising their pizza products.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
