Does Holly M. Sanders understand her own writing?

No one has commented on the Post's Omnicom article from yesterday and I can only assume that's because shareholder lawsuits lack a certain something -- sex, let's say -- to hold anyone's interest.

Oh, Chris Byron: where are you?

hey, i commented on it. here's the blurb posted at multicultclassics:

The New York Post reported that Omnicom is facing allegations of a financial scandal. The advertising behemoth may have set up special deals to hide losses for Web initiatives in order to inflate recorded profits in 2000. Omnicom also apparently lied to the Securities and Exchange Commission about the deals. Why does it seem like the most creative work generated by advertising agencies today is coming out of the accounting departments?

You're right -- I missed it! Thanks for pointing that out. Maybe there should be a new awards show for creative accounting. It could be huge.

Dealing with the entry fees could be a juried part of the competition. But it would be a great pick-me-up for O&M’s Shona Seifert to receive her award while she’s still in jail.
