Glad you are back and back on the saddle.

Madison Avenue deserves much more blame for underwriting right-wing misinformation than it has received. Agencies' clients shouldn't stand for what's going on. That they do reflects poorly on them, as well (or at least on their CMOs).

Back in the early 1980s, I worked with JWT. Watergate was still fresh in everyone's mind. The JWT folks I met—largely outspoken Republicans—were mortified that Bob Haldeman had been "one of ours."

That moral compass is missing on Mad Ave. today.
