    Get behind me, Satan!

    Of course, people say the same thing about me , too  . . .

    I do hope you'll write a book someday.  Did you catch "This American Life" on NPR last night?  An "Ad Guy" did a piece on his NY firm getting one of those bids to "Sell America" to Middle East Arabs.  A thread throughout his piece was on trying to sell a softdrink brand to "inner city youth".  The whole thing was hilarious and depressing at the same time . . . just like what many of us do, eh?

        . . . summary:

        Act Two. America, the Ad Campaign.

        The New York advertising agency where Shalom Auslander works got an assignment from the State Department back in 2001: sell American values to the Muslim world. Now they just have to figure out exactly what to say to millions of people they know absolutely nothing about. Shalom is the author of a book of stories called Beware of God. (15 minutes)
