Default Their paths crossed more than once...

Both in Washington and on Madison Ave, they were well known to each other.

Both understood the power of ideas. Of words. Both spoken and written.

I think they make excellent reading for a foundation of mass persuasion and influence.

By the way Dien, any idea how many businesses you have uncovered over the years? I know of the books, and those have, what, over 150, so I'm thinking you must have nearly 500 or more on file? Just thinking of George Haylings and his 555 Little Known, etc., etc., business ideas.

Time for a book???? Yea!!

There's a lot of fascinating stuff here, in this overlap between advertising and marketing on one side, and propaganda on the other...

Best wishes,
