There's a lot of love in here.

Stan Richards' recent guest column in Talent Zoo got mixed reviews. I say mixed because it was not universally panned - but the negative majority were a bad combination of eloquent and vociferous.

As one of very few creatives in Dallas to never step through the doors (other than to interview for an internship there 10 years ago) I must admit I'm curious - it has the feel of Willy Wonka's factory from out here. Big building looming over I75, Futura Bold logotype emblazened across the roofline. Strange and wonderful smells emitting (is that midnight oil burning? Or burnout?)

I have lots of friends on both sides of the wall - and everyone seems to agree on this: Stan must be doing something right to be growing that business the way he has.

But I have also heard this one: If enough people tell you you're drunk, go lie down.

I think you've heard that one more than once.

I so respect your turn of phrase-ability, of which I struggle at sometimes, even though writer I'm paid to be.
