Allright, let's seperate business from pleasure for a moment:
"Jesse" definitely does not supply us with a readily agreeable social mask thus making him extremely fun for the Journal to mock in print utilizing the time honored tradition of "giving a man enough rope to hang himself with", and his candor does much to expose his rapacious and exploitive nature- he is clearly in this to make money and truly cares not for others, or what others think of his business or him personally. It also appears that what he does is illegal or bordering on illegal as he does not have a license- although, incredibly he never disputes this- and certainly the claims he makes about being "215 friendly" in his ads are outrageous, designed to mislead, and unethical. That being said I must go to bat for this strange fellow for one reason alone:
The list he ultimately povides people for $20 is probably not at all very disimilar from the one that is provided by Misty for $50 or $70 or the one that could be provided by oneself- with a small investment of time- by following the links above.
"Jesse" may be a sociopath, but he doesn't lie about it, and his list is a great deal for those that don't want to spend twenty minutes printing out their own list!
I found his candor both refreshing and amusing-definitely in the Tom Abate category of publicly insanity. And the Journal has given us someone to point at and laugh about.
All is forgiven Hank, just don't let it happen again ;)
I suppose Joel is right. Just seems rather uncharacteristically vitriolic and childish from someone typically very composed in printlife. I enjoy Hanks thought out columns which is why it's a bit shocking to see this. It's not outrageous to see his comments as being a tad bit unprofessional seeing as he calls his readers dim wits publicly but I suppose anything goes in today's media circus. Still, I must maintain that it's comments like these that made me turn off TV news years ago, even if I have inferred too much this time.
Wow Hank. At one point, I though you were a pretty decent writer with a distinct and intelligent voice but it appears you are a hysterics-prone, hubris-filled Nazi with little in the way of restraint or professional credibility. Not sure why you would make comments such as your last gem directed at your readership public....or is this typical behavior for you? Perhaps an imposter?
