Going to Graceland Memphis, Tennessee
Happy New Year, IBO'ers and Lynyrd Skynyd
OOH …Here’s One Thing

Going to Graceland
First, to all my Jewish brethren, Happy New Year.
I read a quote today that I thought was perfect to mark Rosh Hashanah.
“As a child, I was taught, “Whoever takes a life is considered a destroyer of the whole world. Whoever saves a life is considered to have saved the whole world.” This was my grandfather’s interpretation of a passage in the Talmud (a book of rabbinic discussions about Jewish law, ethics, etc.). He was a Depression Era doctor, and from his perspective, any untimely death meant the world would be deprived of a righteous soul or a beloved child or parent or maybe even the next potential Mozart or Einstein. He worked his entire life trying to help others.”

Second, to all you fellow IBO-ers, I look forward to seeing you at Graceland this coming week. It should be a good conference.
Third, coming into the weekend with some trepidation about where the economy, consumer sentiment and the capital markets were going in the face of a stock market sell off, some negative economic indicators and the new impeachment investigation, I was happy to crack Barron’s on Saturday and read:
“Just as Watergate didn’t bother Lynyrd Skynyrd, the start of the House impeachment inquiries is likely to have scant impact on the consumer sentiment..” Randall W. Forsyth, Barrons, September 28
Whew, glad we cleared that up.
And lastly, since no one emailed me to ask how the hell I came up with the total industry’s weekly circulation, or asked what I said to Paulina Porizkova when I met her, I can only assume you missed my article which came out last Thursday. So, like corn beef hash, I am hoping its better the second time around. Here is the link below.
