It’s All Marketing

Among my clients in Southern California I had a market research firm and a PR firm. While I didn’t get involved in the main business, but was generally concerned with their computers and accounting systems, you get a feel for how these organizations work.

Because I’m a bit weird, when I read Ellroon’s post that included Monsanto GM corn causes cancer in rats I wondered how my former clients would deal with this kind of revelation.

It came to me: Monsanto Round-up Ready Corn – now with rodent control. The weeds can’t get it in the fields, and the rats can’t get it in your silo. Improve and keep your yield. Available now from your authorized Monsanto dealer.

[Note: This is sarcasm. My clients would have been more creative.]

Florida Voters Need To Register Early

To vote in the November election you need to be registered a month [30 days] before the day of the election. If you want to vote, you are running out of time to do it.

Even if you don’t want to vote for any of the people running, there are initiatives and amendments on the ballot that need to be voted on [voted against to my way of thinking, but YMMV]. This is how the legislature gets crappy laws passed without having to record a vote on the bills when people figure out how they got screwed.
