HB2U Barbie

I can't resist passing one on from Greg Palast today (a Facebook friend):
March 9, 2009 -- Barbie's 50 years old today - so I thought I'd share with you one of the weirdest memos I've unearthed in my years of investigating corporate maledictions. Passed to me from inside Mattel, the toy company, with an August 12, 1997 time stamp. "TAR" stands for Tibet Autonomous Region
Palast adds: Please friends, note the humor.
Anyway, the marketing department is very wrong about the DL not having accessories. I watched Katie's analysis of the Barbie phenomenon on CBS News, excellent scholarship, lots I didn't know, such a pro she is.
