Nooo, Classic Coke was the winner. New Coke bit the big one.

We'll have to start a Keep The Tube movement.

People are moving here from all over the country, so this mix of people probably makes them think the DC metro area has become the perfect test market.

As long as they leave the tube in tube socks and in Youtube then I'm fine with it.

More, of course. Maybe that's why they're testing it here. DC area has money, so we might be willing to buy more expensive toilet paper if they market it as "being green." IMO it's not green at all, it's wasteful. Most people will end up having to throw out the rolls before they're finished because they'll fall apart and become too much of a mess to hassle with. Thus, these new rolls will be wasting paper not saving it.

Us as well as tourists? Visitors? Perhaps to market test tourists who visit from all over. As well as the people who come to the many conferences, conventions, events, etc.
