The Commodore and his sinking ship.

My earlier post on the demise of JWT is causing an unusual ruckus, but none more spirited than the one taking place on George Parker’s notorious site, Adscam/The Horror!

Adscam on JWT

After reading his enlightened eulogy, read through the 40-plus comments and you’ll get a serious look at why this piece of bad news is badder than most. Even yours truly is taken to task -both for posting there and for my position. Price of entry I suppose.

Beneath the sour grapes and gutter sniping, however, are some fairly prescient comments about the long, sad decline of a Chicago flagship and its unceremonious sinking.

I intend on writing more about the matter on Monday. I expect I will not be the only one.
