I’m late posting today. Maybe I should blame it on Katrina. After all, this fearsome lady not only consumed the Gulf, the city of New Orleans, and the states of Alabama and Mississippi for starters, but she consumed any space left in the country’s news hole available for non-hurricane stories. Did the Shiites and Kurds send us Katrina to take our eyes off their constitutional maneuverings to disenfranchise Iraq’s Sunni minority? How about Al Sharpton’s many detractors who no doubt gloated at the submarining of the Rev. Al’s best-laid publicity plans in Crawford, TX. KPMG is certainly happy at the likely short-lived media attention its half-billion dollar fine will receive.
In PR, so much depends on the day’s weather.
