Thought this letter from Taco Bell to the Fed would be of interest to you ...

In addition, on Thursday, March 15, your readers can visit www.tacobell.com to sign a petition to create a permanent national day, "Hoops Holiday." They will forward all names to Congressional representatives in order to make their voices heard!

Mr. Bernard Bernanke
Federal Reserve Chairman
20th Street and Constitution Avenue
Washington, D.C. 20551


Dear Mr. Bernanke,

It seems that the economy can’t catch a break -- whether it’s Tax day, gas prices, or the housing market. And to top it off, this week an estimated 72 million Americans will watch endless amounts of college basketball. One firm projected that America will lose $1.2 billion in lost office productivity. In fact, you could say March 15 is “NACHO DAY” for the economy.

We have an idea to put some zest into the economy. On March 19, Taco Bell will introduce Zesty Nachos for the ridiculously low price of 99¢ at participating locations. It’s our way to help spark the economy and keep some money in people’s wallets.

Since people won’t be very productive this week due to basketball tourney viewing, here’s an even zestier offer: if you help persuade Congress to make Thursday, March 15, 2007 a new national holiday, we are willing to reward America a free order of these new 99¢ Zesty Nachos. A day off for America and we will pick up the lunch tab -- sounds nice, right?

Sincerely,

Greg Creed

President
Taco Bell Corp.
