I just watched The Wizard of Lies on HBO. For those who may not know, it is the story of Bernie Madoff and his Wall Street maneuverings that landed him 150 years worth of prison time. I don't care who directed it, shot it, none of the above. All I know is the morality play…Read more PEOPLE ARE GREEDY?
I don't recall many Detroiters taking the highway along Route 66. Of course, I'm sure there were some.

I've never seen a nation want to re-set a calendar as badly in my life. From the post-presidential election hand-wringing to the so-called "conscious community" mudslinging, the last last seven or eight weeks have been an absolute drag. (For some.) Now, we got an international pissing match between two Heads of State --- one of…Read more 1…2…3…4….
One of the trade magazines runs an Ad of the Day feature across social media. Yesterday's product offering included a couple of short videos shot in black and white for an auto industry client. Needless to say, it was aimed specifically at "hipsters".
