Avoid Publishers Billing Center

The hydra-headed scoundrels in Oregon who send out mailings intended to look like bills now offer me a subscription to Forbes at significantly greater cost than Forbes charges  me.  This time, the name is “Publishers Billing Center.”  They use dozens of various names.

As I’ve said before, avoid anything asking you to subscribe to something with an address in White City, Oregon.

Bill Bryson on Logos

Bill Bryson’s essay “Rules for Living” includes the following:
“People who wear articles of clothing on which the manufacturer’s name or logo is prominently displayed must also wear a badge saying: ‘Yes, I am an Idiot.’”
As usual Bryson is on the mark.
