Did you know that Gary Dahl... The guy who wrote "Advertising for Dummies" is the guy who invented the "Pet Rock?" Made a ton of money, blew it all on bad investments. He now runs a bar in Los Gatos California... Still, not as bad as the time I got in a NYC cab and found it was driven by an ex CD from Y&R. Now you know what's in store for all of us.

The Adverbatims blog is quite a read, Steve -- thanks for sharing. I laughed... I cried... I tried to hang myself....

Crazy business.

Cheers! -- Roger D.
