First Name

Kansas City's outdoor soccer team was given an...awkward name. It was lengthened to Wizards which was OK really.

Now, it's the bit lame Sporting as in "Sporting Kansas City."

Vote: As bad as "Wiz" or worse or better?

Cigarette Ads

It's not until you pick up an old magazine that you realize what hasn't been for several years--print ads for cigarettes. I am not sure if it was legislative fiat that removed print ads from magazines or a decision by publishers, but they have been gone for a long time.

This is not just an ad--but a contest--remember all the flap over merchandise affiliated with cigs--Joe Camel et. al.? A contest is unthinkable today.

Le Cat Black

Mid 1980s vintage print ad--National Geographic. To any Ford people--ever see one of these at one of your shows?
