Not too long ago, we talked about how Babe Ruth’s Hall of Fame plaque was removed from the museum for the first time since it was put in there so many decades ago.

In America, people love to have things their way. Getting something made to your specific order is such a basic part of the customer experience that fast food chains have used it as the basis for their corporate mottoes for decades. Car dealerships sell innumerable different “package deals” for their products, and there is a huge industry for aftermarket parts to be added after a car has been bought. Our own plaques are custom-made for each customer as well.

The memorial featured a series of custom-made plaques engraved with the names of Hartford’s greatest sons.
On September 16, 2013, a former navy reservist named Aaron Alexis used his status as a military subcontractor to gain access to the Washington Navy Yard, where he began a shooting rampage that ended with the deaths of 12 people, and his own death as well.

Who is Ralph Ronzello? Ralph Ronzello is a District Manager for the Harris Teeter chain of food and pharmacy stores in North Carolina. It is a job he does well, and it allows him to support his family. But, there’s more to Ralph than the mild-mannered job title of District Manager might first suggest to a stranger.
Last week, we talked about the theft of three brass memorial plaques honoring servicemen from California in National City’s Kimball Park Stadium. Thankfully in the case of that theft, the thieves abandoned the plaques quickly when the local community’s outcry against the defacing of a memorial honoring previous generations of their own families proved to be extremely vocal.
