“Neither anticipated that the cause of the conflict [slavery] might cease with, or even before, the conflict itself should cease. Each looked for an easier triumph, and a result less fundamental and astounding. Both read the same Bible, and pray to the same God; and each invokes His aid against the other. It may seem strange that any men should dare to ask a just God's assistance in wringing their bread from the sweat of other men's faces; but let us judge not that we be not judged. The prayers of both could not be answered; that of neither has been answered fully. The Almighty has His own purposes.”

– Abraham Lincoln

*** One Paragraph Pitch:

Hi Ned,

I was recently introduced to your networking group by a former boss. It has proved to be a great resource during my current job search. Can you please post the following pitch for me? Thanks!

Alison

Alison Reeves–Public affairs/communications specialist seeking full-time or contract position in Washington, DC area. In most recent job, I served as a Director of Communications at the National Geographic Society. I have 15 years of public relations, marketing and sales experience at non-profits, university presses, and college textbook publisher. Also have taught college level courses in the fields of African American Studies and Women's Studies. Please contact me at areeves820@yahoo.com or (202) 422-3828.

*** Do you have that special place you like to get away to for a respite from summer?

Send me your pics and I’ll post at the “Your Very Next Step” website (http://www.yourverynextstep.com/) under the category of “Where I'd rather be…”.

Susan Burnell, APR, would rather be at the beach (www,yourverynextstep).

How about you?

*** The Washington Nations set a Nationals Park attendance record last Tuesday with the Red Sox in town, with the 41,517 being the highest attendance anywhere in baseball that night. The next night that record was broken again, as it was again on Thursday night, all with Boston in the house. The majority of the fans were wearing Red Sox hats and jerseys. You can see my Nationals Park dining experience on my Facebook page.

*** Healthy response:

Thank you once again for letting us be part of your weekly newsletter. We received a “healthy” response to our PR ad. Not sure if you intended to include the position again, but please delete this posting from any future newsletters. We’ll need to time to read through all of the previous responses this week.

J

(I only post a listing in the newsletter once. But the newsletter gets posted to the website, and I do not edit the newsletter after I publish it.)

*** The alternative selection:

Ned:

Those last two or three job postings you put in every week are a hoot. I don't know whether they're there strictly for laughs… or for corporate communicators who think to themselves “I'm so sick of the corporate environment (alternatively, looking for a better job). Maybe I'll just go drive a truck or pick grapes.”

Bob from CT

*** Standard PR audience figure multiplier:

Hi Ned:

I'm looking for the standard PR audience figure multiplier. Yes, I've search the Web and checked with PRSA to no avail. I was hoping you or a JOTWer might have the answer.

Thanks,

Monica

monicawro@hotmail.com

(Take audience. Add PR. Multiply by whatever number you want. Voila. Charge hefty fee.)

*** Shout!

Thanks for the coffee mug “shout out”!

Have a great week!

*** No:

That reminds me of the parade scene in Animal House, where the guy asks the two sunglasses-wearing Delta brothers, “My kid can't see. Can he stand in front of you?”

“No.”

BTW, that actor was one of movie's writers. It's his only line in the film, from what was originally a somewhat larger role.

Now if I could only turn this useless knowledge into $$$….

(Seems to me Doug Kenney was one of the writers. He played Stork. He fell off a cliff in Hawaii. I think Harold Ramis was the other writer.)

*** From David Super, my SDANG Shipmate:

Hello Ned,

Job offering #76 caught my eye. Sturgis, SD, is my hometown (Class of

1965) and the place where my military career started on a late summer

day when I enlisted in Headquarters Company of the 109th Engineer

Battalion of the South Dakota National Guard. Even in those days, at

least one company of soldiers from the battalion was assigned to conduct

weekend training during the motorcycle rally. Of course, the rally was

mostly a weekend event in those years, and a company of troops could

have quelled any trouble simply by commandeering the beer trucks.

Alas, times have changed, and so has my hometown. A brigade-sized task

force might not be enough to put down a true rebellion that could

develop within the 400,000 who attend modern biker festivities that

stretch across at least two full weeks. That said, bikers are an aging

lot, these days. Forget the beer truck. Protect the pharmaceutical

tent that dispenses high blood pressure medication, diabetic supplies

and Viagra.

Keep in touch,

David

Ned: Appreciate it if you would post the following.
