Magazine circ-cooking is a federal crime

Magazine circ-cooking is a federal crime: (From AdAge.com) “In the latest development in a federal investigation of circulation fraud in the newspaper and magazine industries, the government has accused two publishing executives with trying to falsely inflate the circulation of the niche title Laptop.”

When one blogs about a topic for a long time, an item like this jogs one’s memory:

Two years ago, during the Rosie vs. G+J USA trial, the CFO of the company testified they cooked the circulation of that magazine.

Hmmm. I wonder how long the statute of limitations is on circ cooking.

Scott Adams (Dilbert) is blogging: From zero to “A” List in one-day.

Adams on why he started a blog (from his newsletter):

The blogger’s philosophy goes something like this:

Everything that I think about is more fascinating than the crap in your
head.

The beauty of blogging, as compared to writing a book, is that no editor
will be interfering with my random spelling and grammar, my complete
disregard for the facts, and my wandering sentences that seem to go on
and on and never end so that you feel like you need to take a breath and
clear your head before you can even consider making it to the end of the
sentence that probably didn’t need to be written anyhoo.

If that doesn’t inspire you to read my blog, I don’t know what will.
