Toggle Commented Apr 4, 2012 on If only Jury Duty could hire a PR firm? at RepMan
congrats maggie! i finally came to this blog and read something that was interesting, topical, and wasnt a rant about advertising or the big bad pr firms. your points are dead-on, having had the "privilege" of serving last month and watching that same VHS video which was comical. i had one other idea- take those who are unemployed and offer them a job by allowing them to serve as often as they want and paying them a fair wage. that would eliminate the mass of folks who have zero interest in being there or who really cant be there. in terms of your idea of changing the system, maybe its not as far-fetched as you think. the principal of our kids school just made a change to an event that has been one way for 30 years and when asked why he did so after all the years of parents wanting this change he said "many may have wanted it yet one person came to me for thr first time and asked and when i saw it made sense, i did it". so maybe your ideas can be pitched to one local county as a trial and once it works this best practice can spread like wildfire. again, congrats. would love to read a daily blog written by you!

while its great to stand up for what one believes in and try and fight city hall (as i do many times as well), my point about the blog was of a different nature. you preach about how blogs have to provide a unique take on things and be fresh. well how does writing about the this topic or your other favorite topic of bashing the advertising industry satisfy the "unique" or "fresh" criteria? anyone who reads this blog even casually knows that 1) you feel like the poor step-child to the big boys and 2) you knock advertising and shout from the rooftops to make pr more important. ok, we get all that. now give us something unique or fresh! in terms of my time selling syringes vs reading pr blogs, im happy to report that i have a lot of free time on my hands and have the ability to sit back and read blogs or play golf thanks to how fast my business has grown over the last 7 years. and as i have told you personally, the truth is that i owe my success to you in how you taught me the fine art of networking. that one tool has allowed my business to grow as fast as it has and thus i can read blogs and not worry about selling syringes or sheetrock. so at least give me something interesting to read in between holes 9 and 10 as i eat lunch or smoke a cigar....

you should change the name of this blog to the RantMan Blog or the RecycledMan Blog- you have ranted about this same topic upwards of 5 times in the last 6 months. we get it- the big guys dominate you in the awards category bc they can afford to. get over it and move on...

rep- hate to say it but you are coming at this from too much of a spin doctor POV. what you suggest above is merely a band-aid. things would seem great for a while but the current captains of the SS Goldman are driven by one thing and one thing only- money. no meetings or time spent with clients will change that. their love of money got them to where they are today. if goldman TRULY wants to change the culture and perception, there is an easy and real change- one that shows actions and not spin. fire blankfein and ask greg smith to come back and CEO. if he accepts, then his culture will lead and clients will likely be thrilled. and if he doesnt, it still shows they are serious about the change that is needed.

rep- i think the thin air from the mountain tops or old age is beginning to get to you. this post is so absurd, it reminded me of the "business models" of the dot coms we used to have. why in the world does lazy boy have to respond to this stat? relaxing on a comy chair and being active are mutually exclusive events. i can do a 2 hour workout in the morning and then enjoy my down time lounging on the couch at night. as a matter of fact, you just gave me an idea! these product makers should use this stat to seel MORE products. "now that you are more active to stay healthy, you also need to relax and be more comfortable at home so buy one of these". but there is more to it. you are an avid reader- but maybe you shouldnt be. after all, most of us arent "active" while we read! so why waste that time! and one more- you bitch and complain about NJ Transit but why bother taking it? try walking to work or ride a bike! come on rep- some of your posts are off the wall at times but this one takes the cake...

i would become a yankee fan so that i could see my team win a game or two before i die. nothing worse than dying and knowing you did so with your team made you sick each night leading up to that moment.

I vote for Steinbrenner. He was the biggest snake the bronx ever saw...
while i typically like your posts, this one is quote poor from an image and rep. standpoint. you took something on advice from a doctor to help treat your illness- that fine. but talking about the high and giving a shout-out to hip hop- not so smart. would u be happy if half of your employees left to lunch today and came back having a high from their "dessert" today? or if instead of a cup of coffee in the am, most of 470 park ave south was having a shot sizzurp? and from a clients perspective, i would certainly question the head of an agency flaunting his getting high over the weekend...just saying.
