Why I hate the “Smart Money”

Nov 28, 2004

I do not watch TV often. In fact, I usually indulge when I’m avoiding other work. As a consequence, I have been subjected to the new GM multibrand commercial featuring Suze Orman. Basically, the commercial consists of a middle-aged executive woman walking through a bank, hawking financing deals.

This is all well and good, but I would like to speak to the person who thought it was smart to run this commerical three times within the same break, with a different brand each run. Lunacy! After enduring a pair back-to-back, I decided that enough was enough, and added RSS 1.0 syndication to my site.

It’s not perfected or finished yet, as I need to add the capability to individually view blog entries, but I’m 95% of the way there. Thank you, GM—you’ve disgusted me and forced me into productivity.
