William Faulkner on Advertising holding companies.

I came upon this Faulkner quotation this morning. Consider it a tale told by an idiot.

"The best job that was ever offered to me was to become a landlord in a brothel. In my opinion it's the perfect milieu for an artist to work in."

I suppose that's one way to think of holding companies. As landlords in brothels. Though they ain't real artists but con artists.

Ah, yes. And not in a good way.

I just noticed that Faulkner looks a lot like Sam Scali.
