From the looks of it, the White House may want to ditch courting Tony Snow for its new press secretary and speak with Brian Kelleher from Hilton's management. If ducking and weaving were an Olympic sport, this guy would be a record holding gold medalist.
Granted, he didn't HAVE to answer the questions as many pointed out, but I'm not quite sure he did. As in dealing with my students who spend SO much time avoiding work and expend SO much effort actually cheating sometimes, it would have been so much easier to just ANSWER the questions.
Andi's World is updating today with the answers to readers' questions surrounding the impending shuttering of Fran O'Brien's at the Capital Hilton. Her commentary after the answers mirrors my own.
As for me and my wallet, we'll be there Friday night to patronize Fran O'Brien's to high heaven and then closed forever more from Hilton properties. Being shrewd in business doesn't always make you a good corporate citizen or "hospitable"...and, it's up to the customer as to how he or she wishes to respond.
