On Memory

How far back can you remember events in your life? I was born in 1952 and remember some things in 1958. The Colts-Giants NFL Title Game. Vaguely remember events from my early childhood, that may have even been earlier.

On Journalism

I seem to notice that a lot of “news” articles are basically press releases from companies or groups put together into a summary of the subject, quoting certain people from the source on how something is working or doing. Is that journalism or just tooting someone’s horn?

On National Merchandising Corporation

I worked for them in 1977, selling advertising. I won a trip to Boston as the volume leader in my training class. Some great people there. The owner Art Sells, (great name), Bill Zollo (great trainer), Roger Liss (my manager), Rick Rathfon (in my training class) and Tom Volkar (great salesperson).
