Well the Doc opened up the old mailbag today and here’s what poured out.
Dear Dr. Ads,
Say, that’s some magnificent ad on the back page of Saturday’s New York Times A-section, yeah?
In case you missed it:
Is that a beautiful record of accomplishments for a man to leave behind or what, Doc?
– Mickey B
Dear Mickey B,
First thing – all those boldface l‘s in the ad above? They’re not there in the print version.
Not to mention the ad overall is the worst piece of typesetting this side of Shakers, Glendale.
Do we have a double-f problem here or what?
Regardless, let’s look at the content of the ad close-up.
As for those Appreciative New Yorkers, here’s what you get at #appreciativenewyorkers on Twitter, and here’s what comes up on Facebook (i.e. nothing).
Of course, there’s always firstname.lastname@example.org.
Which the Doc assumes consists of one Michael Bloomberg.
Until proven otherwise.
