Editor’s note: A friend in town emailed me this advertising pitch he received from The Union. He found it to be — well — excessive. And he passed. Where’s the learned hand of management when it’s needed?
“Are you proud to be an American? Do you believe in the tenets of the U.S. Constitution? Do you want to show our community that you are a patriot? Consider advertising in The Presidency, a new keepsake publication that will have bios of all 45 U.S. Presidents, the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and information about Constitution Day events. The Presidency will be inserted into The Union on September 5, and will be handed out during the Constitution Day parade and Revolutionary War reenactments and demonstrations that occur throughout the weekend.
“If you are interested in being a part of this one of a kind publication, please take a look at the attached flyer (and) reserve your ad space in this wildly popular publication that showcases our American heritage. The deadline to reserve your spot is this tomorrow, August 23, so don’t delay!
Thank you, and God bless America.”
