Publisher's Note

We Always Get Our Man (or Woman) …

As anyone who has ever turned on a TV and watched Law and Order knows, the beginning of each episode begins with the disclaimer: “The following story is fictional and does not depict any actual person or event.” Well, this Publishers Note has NO such disclosure — I confess, I really did this!
In these days of a “careful” economy and tight wallets, Carol and I pride ourselves on going the extra mile for all of our readers and advertisers. While I try to make sure the word gets out about SFHN&HR and CannabisNewsFlorida, by connecting clients, supporting worthy causes, and trying to be in a million places at one time, Carol makes sure we actually have articles to publish and websites to post. (For some reason, Carol always has felt my inability to spell “cat” precludes me from that side of things.) But, recently, she needed my outside assistance in corralling a willing but recalcitrant interviewee, who for the purposes of anonymity, shall be called Bob.
You see Bob was going to be an important interviewee for one of our future articles and Bob was now known around Carol’s desk as The Great Procrastinator. Although a self-professed willing participant, Bob was constantly rescheduling telephone interviews. Well, in Carol’s world, once is understandable, twice forgiven, but three strikes …
So, Carol decided it was time to launch her secret weapon, in short her “hired gun” — me. So I jumped in the car and headed to Miami with a list of questions and strict instructions not to return without Bob’s responses. And as instructed, I planted myself in front of Bob’s desk and came away with the goods.
So what are the morals of this story? 1. Like the Royal Canadian Mounties, we always get our man; 2. Like Avis — we try harder; and 3. You can run, but you cannot hide from Carol.
