Blogging is by its nature self-promotion, so you may be thinking that I ought not be throwing the first stone at someone who is very impressed with himself. I can only say this in my defense: I'm not promoting myself with your tax dollars.
In this I am different than Tennessee state Representative John Lundberg.
Lundberg has introduced a resolution in the Tennessee legislature bragging on himself and his business, a PR outfit called The Corporate Image. It's nauseating.
WHEREAS, this General Assembly finds it appropriate to pause in its deliberations to acknowledge and applaud the owners and employees of The Corporate Image for their dedication to furthering the public relations industry in the State of Tennessee and throughout the region, the nation, and the world; now, therefore,
BE IT RESOLVED BY THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE ONE HUNDRED EIGHTH GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF TENNESSEE, THE SENATE CONCURRING, that we hereby honor and commend the owners and employees of The Corporate Image upon their celebration of the company’s 20th Anniversary, and extend to them
our best wishes for every future success.
Rep. Jon Lundberg views his position as an elected representative the way a 13-year-old boy views a tube sock. But I come not to bury Lundberg, but to praise him: he's just more honest about it than other legislators.
