Just stay away from Wal-Mart for oil changes. They stripped the threads on my oil pan a few years ago and I had to get a new oil pan.

I would think wheel ramps are cheaper, and probably a lot sturdier than jacks.

So how big does everyone think Mayor Doherty's head grew when he saw himself on the cover of this month's Happenings Magazine along with a lengthy article about he and his family? I wonder who he's friends with at the magazine?

His head is already large....both literally and figuratively...

Maybe it was paid for by "Doherty for mayor 2008". Honestly Mr. Krabs will tell you about the billboards. You are going to see that face EVERYWHERE he can get it. Its a election year.

Yep...the old taxpayer-funded "Summer in the City" billboards, only up during election year, with half of the billboard being Doherty's smug cocky face, and only in the city. Don't you think if it was an actual marketing campaign, there would have been some of those billboards OUTSIDE the city?

It's not like it's Time or Newsweek, and it's not like it was a big suprise. Or was this just another shot at the mayor for the sake of taking a shot at the mayor?

So he's on the cover of a magazine that a few people pick up on the end of the supermarket cash register, or leaf through while waiting for the desk clerk to call up their reservation. Big f-ing deal. If his head even minutely changes sizes at all because of this, then he has more self esteem problems than even you, Paul.

You'd think that, wouldn't you? If I were in charge of marketing efforts for the city, I'd look at investing in pro-city billboards along I-476 Northbound between Philadelphia and the Lehigh Valley, I-78 Westbound between Central Jersey and the Lehigh Valley, I-81 Southbound between Syracuse and Binghamton, and I-80 Westbound between North Jersey and the Delaware Water Gap. Why? These are all hot commuting arteries, and when people are stuck in traffic on their way home from work, they may see the billboards and wish to scope out Scranton for a family-oriented weekend trip. Whether you like the mayor or not has no bearing on the fact that there is a lot to see and do here (Coal Mine Tour, Steamtown, Houdini Museum, Everhart, La Festa Italiana, Yankees, etc.)

Happenings is actually read by just about everyone I know. It's not on a national level, but a lot of people DO peruse it.

Again, though, that hardly makes it influential or even widely read by the rest of the area. Peruse is the perfect word. Thumbed through idly while waiting for something else. A flight, a grocery order to be bagged, an oil change/brake job/engine overhaul, or a bus, perhaps. I'll bet most of the readership are in it for the coupons, and couldn't even name the last month's cover subject. Your mileage, of course, will vary.

Basically, my point can be summed up in two words. "So", and "what".
