(Happy Father's Day)


"I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody."

Bill Cosby

Truer words were never spoken. Neither here nor in Hoboken.

When I wrote what turned out to be the most famous (and successful) personal ad ever published, a lot of people asked me if the ad didn't offend a lot of women. I always answer, "Yes, it did. It offended a lot of fat, ugly women with toxin personalities. Women I did NOT want to answer the ad." I continue telling them (on this subject)...

"I Concentrated On Selling The Foxes...

And... Did NOT Worry About Offending The Dogs!"
