Nothing says "disingenuous" like using race relations as a marketing tool to sell overpriced bean juice.

They would be better served if they devoted a percentage of each sale to a cause which helps to mend the race problems in this country.

...And here's how not to turnaround a company that's had its branding completely screwed by ten years of bad management.

Bob Hoffman had a petty good tear down of this as well:

Anyone see this?

I wonder where that means to Ms. Wahl's grand plans?

RIP Joe Franklin. Best late night host fall asleep to.

The following was inspired from when I actually did meet Joe. It was at his restaurant on 9th ave. When I walked over to him to thank him for all his years in entertainment, he was chewing down a plateful of ribs. Boy did he loved ribs.

I've been working on a series of videos to help promote Tryon Creek Park here in Portland. The Park does a great job at helping children becoming connected with nature. Here's a short 30 second promo I made that I thought you all might enjoy.

My dear friend Catherine passed away last week. Unfortunately, the breast cancer she had been battling spread to her brain, lungs and liver. 

Catherine was great artist. Another friend told me Catherine had used the Sketchbook Project to deal with her breast cancer fight.

Here is that sketchbook.

I know I have a tendency to tear apart plenty of ad campaigns, but this one is my vote for "excellent PSA"! London FCB Inferno (?) did  a bang up job with this. Far better than the Playtex "Like a Girl" campaign that will playing on the Super Bowl.

...oops. I guess I can't escape slamming someone!

KFC apparently uses the Philippines as it's "test kitchen?" I'm really surprised this wasn't launched in Kansas or Texas.

The treatment was fine, but the cost is a complete ripoff. They triple and double bill for services that would be easily affordable at clinics like Zoomcare. Steer clear of this facility and Providence Medical Group in general. Total for profit price gouging with little regard to patient affordability. I'll give you a short example of how badly they jack up prices: I had to get stitches at the ER for a cut. They charged me $284 for tetnus shot. The same kind of shot that costs them $15 (in bulk) and which I could have received at Walgreens for $30. Is it any wonder that the US healthcare system is so bad with prices abuses like this happening?

Dave helped me sell my family home in BIg Flats while I was living here in Oregon. The man is exemplary and very trust worthy. This sale posed some tricky problems, but Dave's knowledge about the matter resolved them smoothly and with a minimum of cost. Definitely one of the best lawyers to in the area. You'd be wise to use his services.
