*** One Paragraph Pitch:

Jennifer G. Hickey – Washington, DC-based communications specialist seeking full-time but willing to do freelance work.

Resourceful communications specialist with more than 10 years of service in the public, private and non-profit sectors. With four years spent as a communications director, press secretary and Congressional speech writer, and seven years working as a reporter/columnist for a national newsmagazine, I possess a demonstrated record of meeting editorial deadlines, crafting strategic media relations plans and collaborating with members of Congress and senior executives. Managed the web development and content administration for a 70,000-member non-profit organization. Conducted research analysis on multiple political campaigns. Have developed an extensive network of contacts in the press, government and policy community. On-camera experience, a well-developed sense of humor, and strong leadership skills round out the picture.

[She] is a team player who requires little or no supervision to accomplish her tasks. She learned the military culture quickly, which, in an organization such as ROA, is no easy task since we represent all uniformed military services. Her prior experience as a congressional staffer placed her well ahead of her predecessors in understanding the legislative process which is so critical to the ROA mission. — Major General, USA (Ret) David Bockel, Deputy Executive Director, Reserve Officers Association, Washington, DC

Popular singer/songwriter Barry Manilow has written some of the great songs of the contemporary era. One of his biggest hits was “I write the songs.” Who wrote I write the songs?”

Bonus: Who was the song written about?

(Answer? The answer is posted now on the JOTW webpage. Visit www.nedsjotw.com.)

*** Regarding last week’s trivia question:

Hey Ned,

Next time, ask a harder rock and roll trivia question.

The song “Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye” is the answer–the fictitious band name is “Steam.” How many of us have sung this at a sporting event? And somewhat embarrassingly, some of us remember the song when it was a number 1 hit..

Marge Kumaki

(Ned: Okay. That was easy. Next week is easy, too. The week after will be harder. I said impossible, but you can find anything on Google.)

I'll be coming back from California on November 10, but will try to get access to email that morning, so I can see your “impossible” trivia question…Just remember, some of your JOTW subscribers are old enough to remember a lot of things–because they were there when those things happened!

Hello Ned: Where would I find entry level jobs in marketing/communications?

*** Political commentary from the otherwise apolitical Ned Lundquist:

Ned,

I had to share your election fatigue message with several peers. You hit the nail on the head with your apolitical post. Brilliant. And so true.

Do you feel more fatigue because you are in the midst of it all in greater DC? Maybe I feel the fatigue more because I’m in Arizona? I agreed with Celeste, though. When I was in San Antonio over Columbus Day weekend, it was a pleasant reprieve from election fatigue. There wasn’t much divisive, partisan craziness there.

My second comment has to do with the expanded weekly alternative selections, courtesy of Mark Sofman. Maybe they were inspired by this year’s election season…or something else. They were interesting nonetheless. Way to go, Mark!

Heather Murphy

*** From Mary Dixon:

Ned,

I had time to peruse your thoughts on the election process and your anguish is clear.

One thing you said really struck me:

“Change is by design hard to accomplish, because all change must be

approved and paid for by the Congress. The only way to get something

through Congress is to rub shoulders and scratch backs, and the people

we are thinking about electing are part of that process. So much for

change.”

A lot of times it seems to me that people say they want change and that our government (Congress, usually) just doesn't act fast enough.

Well, our government was specifically designed (as you noted) not to be all that efficient about changing things.

I guess the founders knew that you can get rapid change easily when you have a dictatorship.

But they had been there, done that — that was what they were getting away from.

And, with regard to back scratching, I think politics is supposed to be about horse trading.

Most of life is like that — marriage, friendships, working relationships.

You get something — the other guy gets something — no one gets everything they want.

And everyone stumbles forward toward what they hope is a better tomorrow, regardless of what today looks like.

It isn't perfect. It is deliberately not as efficient as it could be.

But, most important of all, you can't put it on autopilot.

All of us really need to keep an eye on things and to take part.

And, to seek ways to keep things from getting out of balance — like these days it seems big money lobbyists need to be reined in a bit — they seem to have gotten disproportionately influential.

Change can come, but it is most likely to be incremental — and I'll take that.

Mary Dixon

(I agree. Which is why I think it is naïve to presume a politician can promise change and deliver.)

*** Political fallout:

Hi Ned,

Forwarded your commentary to a few friends because I whole-heartedly agree with what you are saying. I prefaced it with, “He's right; we could feed a small nation with election expenditures.” As a new voter (not new to the country, just a new citizen), you have certainly summarized my thoughts on the process. As for the last comment. I loved the idea but I believe the media would eat him alive for that decision.

Sheila Taylor

Here's what I got back:

I agree—this is a very sorry state of affairs, which could be avoided by some real reform. I think two or three months is plenty for a campaign. Unfortunately, the industry that’s grown up around this system has grown powerful, and the media love having a reality TV program they don’t have to produce. It doesn’t bode well for change, but what we could do with the money spent on this nonsense!

-E

Imagine how many people could be fed with the money spent on porn 🙂

-L

Thanks for this. I think it would be revolutionary if Barack Obama took the remaining money from the $150 million he raised last month and helped the mortgagees of some of the houses under foreclosure. Then he should cancel the 30 minutes of prime time he bought for Thursday night on all major channels. Then he should take his wife and kids and go be with his grandmother in Hawaii announcing that he has done all he can to convince the voters he's the best man but that if they haven't made up their minds by now, squandering more money won't do much good. I think he would win in a landslide, if only because people would feel so relieved. How do you like this idea?

-T

*** From Larry Bearfield:

How do you think the election would turn out if all ballots had this

question:

[ ] NONE OF THE ABOVE

*** This comment was posted at www.nedsjotw.com in response to Ned’s commentary:

I too see the amount of money being spent on this election as obscene. All this money and I don't feel as if I have learned anything about the candidates that could not have been learned if they had spent only 5% of the amount they have spent.

Change is a meaningless theme. Change is the only constant. Change is neither inherently good nor inherently bad.

As for the ads–I would happily debate either candidate about how many false statements and stats there are in their ads.

Luchok

*** As was this:

I too am appalled at the amount of money being spent on advertising when there is so much good work that needs to be done in the world. Further, why don't candidates have to follow the Truth in Advertising laws? David Ogilvy considered this to be the greatest scandal in advertising and considered practioners in creating the advertising “prostitutes”. I saw a suggestion on Talent Zoo that we should be like other countries and not allow advertising, just do PR – I think they should also have to follow the IABC code of ethics as well.

Beth

*** Was the alternative selection politically motivated?

Key responsibilities of this position will be driving trucks from different locations hauling liquid hog manure.

Okay, so people in PR have been called names before, but REALLY… we have to draw the line somewhere!!! LMAO!

Dan Gaffney

*** Fall back position:

I, too, love October – the air is one minute crisp and bracing, the next minute warm and soothing. Sunlight takes on a special quality, like no other time of year – all golden yellow and orange. Mike and I had the great fortune to attend the IABC Heritage Region Conference in Hartford CT October 12-14 (New England in autumn – what's not to love?) and took the rest of the week as a holiday. We spent three crisp nights breathing the sea air on Cape Cod. We stayed in a friend's cottage – the Wee House in Wellfleet – and visited the Highland Light, dashed off some work at the Wired Puppy Internet cafe in Provincetown, ate lots of seafood, watched movies and read books. We then came home to Ohio the long way, through Cooperstown NY, with the necessary visit to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. We spent the night at August Lodge, an upscale rustic lodge (is that an oxymoron?), and had a bonfire on the hill under a brilliant blanket of stars, listening to the coyotes. Then on to Niagara Falls ON for a night, with an hour wait each way at the border, and home to Cleveland.

The 2009 Heritage Region Conference will be in Cleveland next year – October 18-20, 2009. Save the date! No wait at the border (indeed, no border)! We're eager to host our fellow communicators – y'all come!

*** From Bridget Serchak:

As part of your next pirate update, you will HAVE to put a copy of this article in the JOTW – public relations AND pirates – this was made for your e-zine… though I don't remember seeing this position opening advertised in JOTW. You would think that JOTW would have been the first place they advertised since your readers are probably the most pirate-informed communicators on the planet. Wonder how Sugule Ali got his job… 🙂

Pirates reveal new side with spokesperson

Years of stories that depict pirates as villainous brutes have caused some serious reputation damage to the pirating business as a whole. So when a call came from The New York Times, pirate spokesperson Sugule Ali stepped up to offer a 45-minute interview and a never-before-seen level of transparency from the pirate community.
