I’m not sure why anyone should want to search an advertising copywriter’s thoughts on old news. Still, this blog archive is here, if only so I can sometimes point to it and say “see, I said it first.” For my latest advertising news and views, visit the Ad Blog main page. If you have a question about my Ad Blog, you might find the answer in my very brief Ad Blog FAQ.
