Human dwarf species found in Indonesia
Company taking orders for hypoallergenic kittens
My challenge to both campaigns is to factor these stories into your platforms. I know you can do it.
Oh, by the way, Cigna, Interpublic, Duke Energy, Rockwell Collins, and Time Warner have all shifted their earnings releases one week to November 3. There is no bad news and it’s purely coincidental there’s an election the night before. Hey, would you like a nice can of C2?
