 The time has come for me to bid you all adieu.

I wanted you, my subscribers, to know before I make an announcement publicly on October 1st.

This shyish writer came in for an interview.  He had a dry sense of humor.  

On his resume he had a job listed where he said he did Closed Captioning for Porn Films.  I thought oh so funny, guy has a sense of humor and a warped brain.  Excellent....

I bristle against this pervasive notion that “It’s all about the Work.”

(In an attempt to cover my ass and maintain goodwill from BBDO, a network near and dear to my heart, I must quickly explain, I’m not talking about an agency’s product, nor am I taking a shot at BBDO...

What does Labor Day mean for you?

The end of Summer, the beginning of Fall, the time to get that thing called ‘discipline’ out of the closet, dust it off, and deploy it again on a daily basis?
