Press Release of the Day

But there’s something about the way most of them are written that puts me on edge. They assume a certain level of stupidity, laziness and gullibility on the part of the reader. That’s probably well-advised, but I find it personally annoying. It’s sort of like my annoyance with faux-personalized mass email from companies (and some bloggers).
