    Congratulations on your new position. As a part of your marketing perspectve, you might reflect on my recent experience with a Hertz car rental.
    I rented a Malibu (or equivalent) from 4012 N. State St., Chicago, for pick up at 8:00 AM, Sunday, October 4, 2015. It was my intent to drive to Door County, Wisconsin, and return the vehicle to the same office by 6:00 PM, Tuesday, October 6th.
