Dear Lawrence Ozeh,

Wow! Informative & well article, thank you. I’m scared now. I thought I’m pretty immune to advertising now, but. I, I’m deluding myself. I’m just going to get into my Honda, blow my nose on my Kleenex, & drive (thanks to Shell Oil) to get Crown Royal whiskey, ‘cause I’m running low, & just comfort myself on my Lazy Boy sofa. Oy!
