In a mild update of the ol' blast-the-bad-guys-with-hard-rock-24/7 tactic of the US military, a New Zealand mall in Christchurch has decided that unruly youth hate Manilow music so much that playing it will make the them go away. Take-home quote: "I never said Barry Manilow was a weapon of mass destruction."
Nice strategy, except, what about non-unruly youths like myself (26 years old as of this writing) who also can't stand Barry Manilow? What about Dave Barry fans? I feel that on the whole, this can't be good for business.
