February,being Black History month,what a great gift,with President Obama recently elected,and the road that led to his triuph being largely paved by the actions of Dr. King, I foolishly thought that this would make an excellent experience for the children my wife teaches. But I was let down by B&N.Surely I thoght I would receive them within a week, at worst two. Forget about it. Had I been told this would not be received by me for more than a month, I wouldn't had expected them to be presented as a lesson plan on black history month. I still would have purchased them. But I think I should have been told about this dilema as a matter of respect for me being a customer. It saddens me to know you have no feelings for a little old customer who depends largely on purchases online. I am retired for medical reasons that I do not wish to elaborate on. Making a trip to one of your stores is just too much for me. My doctors tell me all I need is support, thanks for yours in this matter. P.S. I do not expect you to post this, I just had to let it out.
