Des Moines Here We Come…Not


I feel for my old friend and colleague Sue Geramian. As the in-house communications person for magazine publisher Gruner+Jahr during the Rosie lawsuit debacle, she had to endure a career’s share of tumult, including testifying at the trial. Now, her company is being sold to Meredith Corporation for $350 million (after G+J steadfastly claimed it was not for sale). Does this mean that Sue will move to Meredith’s headquarters — in Des Moines, Iowa!? Knowing Sue, I doubt it.
