Perspectives of time

You can’t move fast enough to keep up with the headlines these days. Still, a keen sense of the here-and-now never hurt anyone, especially in the marketing and advertising business.

I’ve received some requests for the next installment in The Adventures of Halasz in Wonderland* — the story that made its debut last week in this space that actually was a veiled cry for help from someone whose job entails following the antics of the Halifax County Board of Supervisors — but I’ll admit to not being able to work up much enthusiasm for a sequel (yet).
