I’m giving Amazon a day or two to get their arse in gear and explain what’s up before I pay my web dudes to take down their banner/link.  But simply saying it was a glitch isn’t exactly what I’d call a full mea culpa. This was either:

A.  A soon-to-be-ex middle manager’s “executive” decision.

B.  A fundamentalist Easter egg.

C.  All of the above.

I’d expect that Bezos will get ahead of this issue quickly with a public statement, but power and wealth does funny things to people’s heads/sense of accountability, so who knows? It’s amazing how a digital powerhouse is acting like a bunch of bricks-and-mortars morons.
