We should have known better.

I am up in Cape Cod with my family, staying at one of the world's most idyllic places, the Chatham Bars Inn.

I'm lucky.

I like my family. They like me. We want to spend time together (within reason.) And we can afford it (within reason.)

In any event, our room is decorated with small prints that depict American aphorisms from a few centuries ago.

The one shown above reads, "A Sailor between two lawyers is like a fish between two cats" and is attributed to Benjamin Franklin.

We've forgotten, in advertising, about lawyers. They run our holding companies. They run our clients. They make the rules that benefit only them.

And we are a fish between two cats.

Fat cats insist on 20 mediocre line extensions instead of 1 great product. They force their agencies to fight each other instead of collaborating on behalf of consumers. They demand creative that speaks only to the CMO and his cronies. And when their methods damage the bottom line, they blame and fire everyone else.
