Feeling Sad? · Or, if you’re not, have you noticed people around you acting kind of gloomy? Particularly <em>young</em> people? Have you recently found a picture of an attractive Englishwoman in your bookish child’s room, with “Murdering bitch!” or “<i>Avada Kedavra</i> to you too!” scrawled on it? Which is to say, the latest Harry Potter, well, it’s not cheerful at all. That awful Englishwoman remarked insouciantly that she was thinking of starting on the sequel next year... in the interim, she is a major Bringer of Unhappiness to Children of all ages, and I think she should get a move on. And if she can’t engineer a happy ending I urge the House of Commons to impose a really frightful punishment. Something medieval, involving dank mossy dungeons and rusty iron implements.
 
PR Week · My <a href='/ongoing/When/200x/2005/07/11/New-Public-Relations'>The New Public Relations</a> piece has provoked a ton of really interesting commentary and I will do a follow-up, but I think I’ll wait till after this Thursday, when I’m joining in a Webcast for <a href='http://www.prweek.com/home/index.cfm'>PR Week</a>, billed as <a href='https://event.on24.com/eventRegistration/EventLobbyServlet?target=registration.jsp&extravalidation=findDomain(document.regform.email.value,bannedArray1)&eventid=14259&sessionid=1&key=9CDD865859FAF9052C92F0AD3913803C&referrer=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.prweek.com%2Fhome%2Findex.cfm%3Fsite%3D3&sourcepage=register'>Guide to corporate blogging</a>. They tell me that they’ll have hundreds of people there; my goal is to learn more from them than they learn from me.
