Since it’s Christmas week, today’s Media Monday is all about Santa Claus. It’s not about uninhabited Santa Claus, Ariz., which is 14 miles northwest of Kingman. Nor is it about Santa Claus, Ga., which has several Christmas and reindeer-themed street names: Candy Cane Road, December Drive, Rudolph Way, Dancer Street, Prancer Street, and Sleigh Street. […]

How could Glove Affairs, the Romance, History and Tradition of the Baseball Glove, by Noah Liberman, have anything to do with public relations? Well, it’s a stretch.  Like a wide throw […]

Last month, Abbie discovered a blog that detailed five children’s books every business person should read. I drew First The Egg, by Laura Vaccaro Seeger.  It’s all of 28 pages, including the title page and the copyright page. First the egg then the chicken.  We can all break through on our own. First the tadpole […]
