If anyone knows anything, or can find out, please let me know.


>From Bertell Ollman:


I just heard from a prof. in Sydney, Australia, who told me that her mother, a reporter, was told (by whom is not clear) not to report on the Wall Street events, and that people in Australia are just now learning about it.

Do you know about this? How extensive is this? Who is behind it? Worth asking a few questions, but to whom should they be addressed?

  • I saw coverage on Korean TV rebroadcast from Athen, OHio university

  • do beleive that the point here, Chris, is that they are NOT pleasing the customers. Sales are down. Targets haven’t been reached.They are spending hella big piles of cash on Crispin+Porter and still serving up terrible food. And losing customers. Period.Wallstreet could give a damn about advertising because, in the end, what counts is sales figures.What I’ve maintained about the subservient chicken and other ‘clever’ ads (gotta dig those bikini babes with the freaky king dude) is that, no matter how ‘viral’ they become, they don’t necessarily make people fall in love with your product.There is a huge disconnect that could be rectified with them moving their advertising budget to a quality control budget.
