Why can't I post an update when I'm viewing my own profile page. Surely that's a major design flaw Google+ ?

Noticed that myself. Does seem a bit silly - hopefully they'll pick up on it.

The original killer copywriter - who wrote himself out of jail. Fascinating and almost-forgotten tale from the early days of 20thC advertising.

(This has been the most visited post I've written in a long time...)

What an astonishing story. We hear about John Caples and Claude Hopkins, but never Louis Eytinge, the original "killer copywriter." Nice sleuth work, Ben.

Amazing pub - it's my local. Excellent Adnams, great staff, good line in conversation from the locals. A real lesson in how to run a top-flight community pub that pulls in custom from miles around.
