@KensViews you, too, Ken!!!
Martin -- can't wait for you to get here. Gonna be a mini-CAPRSA!
@AnneReuss - so nice to meet you. I work quite a bit with the deaf and hard-of-hearing community here in Arizona. In addition to the Arizona Commission for the Deaf and the Hard of Hearing and the Arizona Relay Service, we also do some project work for the Arizona School for the Deaf and the Blind. Like @ginidietrich, my ASL skills are elementary at best, but thanks to my very patient clients and some awesome interpreters, we are able to make great things happen to raise awareness of the deaf community on such issues as education, healthcare, transportation, etc.
If your travels find you in Phoenix, I certainly hope we can get together for a "wine glass big" as my client likes to say :)

@Lisa Gerber You should have seen the stuffing parties -- piles of paper, staplers, folders, envelopes -- and paper cuts, dozens of paper cuts :)

I am working on my list now. Had to ask my book club ladies for some help.

@terence.stephens Although these outlets do not charge to post content, it is still important to remember the overall communication strategy when considering adding these to your plan. It still has to be a good fit.

@ginidietrich that's me -- always looking out for the underdog.
@Maranda @ginidietrich Right, if we replace ABC and CBS with two other nationally recognized brands, would we still say this is awesome and consider it funny?
11 months ago on CBS Issues Fake (and Totally Awesome) News Release
@KensViews I'm not a big fan of stunts. This is a stunt.
Gini -- I'm surprised at you...you really think this is "totally awesome?" How does issuing a fake news release, albeit one that is meant to be a joke, awesome? And to have it appear on their official news site? Is this an example of a strategic public relations move? Have some fun, sure, but don't disguise it as a news release -- buy an ad for this kind of thing.
I have been working with the disability community for the past 15 years. The issue of accessibility across all disabilities is a common topic. The more we are aware of it, the more likely we are to address it up front. Whether it is leaving the accessible parking spot at the mall open even though "I'm just running in for a minute," insisting that broadcasters caption all TV shows and commercials or asking our local theatres to provide closed-captioning and video-description technology, accessibility is something for all of us to be concerned about.

Thank you, Shonali, for sharing this story. I remember reading about Ilon and the Torah at the time of the crash. I hope your friend gets the needed support to make this film.

@VivaDog is a bit busy right now at the spa, but she asked me to respond for her and tell you to tell your mom happy birthday.

Darn it -- no wonder I can never find the "go viral" button on a post. Shoot!

Jay...again, I am so sorry for your loss. Taking time for yourself and your family, enjoying and cherishing what you have is the good that comes from this. Here's to you, my friend.

Wow! We really do take things for granted. This is a remarkable story of putting the good of the whole before the good of one. Thanks for sharing.

Just downloaded the book -- look forward to reading it. We talk alot about this with our staff and clients...we need to pay attention to the news around us. Not only to determine if we can add additional insight, but equally as important to know when not to pitch.

I love when I'm ahead of the trend -- I've been following Ken for a long time. And you are right... he is funny and kind and smart. And we share a passion for live theatre. Happy to call him a friend.
