NASCAR’s free advertisement on an editorial page. Really?
The Kansas City Star
…And of course with this writing, their acronym’d corporate body receives another search engine prize. Richard Childress, from his remote North Carolina home, gave us some socially conscious, conservation-friendly head patting and sage-like reassurance in his column below… he took off his multi-logo’d racing leather jacket and gave us a sweet raceway-side, fireside-like chat.
To read conservation(ists) in the same line as NASCAR gave me more than one chuckle. Have you seen those full page ads in newspapers that don’t appear like an ad, yet with a small print header on the page as “advertisement”? That’s clever marketing but the purveyor pays for the pages. NASCAR received a freebie with the cost of his advertising passed to the newspaper reader. Bad business.
Forums like this promote free speech. Has MidWest Voices taken the “free” a lap further by making this a forum for free advertisement? Bad form.
Bad business + bad form = absurd
