If cards were gifts, why the small denominations?

November 18, 2009

Mayor Sheila Dixon must believe the jurors listening to her case have the IQ of my pet Yorkies. If someone is buying a gift card with the intent to give it as a gift, as Ms. Dixon's lawyers have claimed was the intent with the cards she used, anyone with any hint of intelligence knows you buy the gift card for the amount intended for the recipient.

Since Ms Dixon doesn't understand this concept, here's an example: For Christmas and for birthdays, I give my grandsons a gift card to Best Buy so they can choose their own computer game. I buy one gift card for $100 - not 10 gift cards for $10 each. It seems to be common sense.Ginny Phillips, Baltimore
