Bugs Bunny - Regrets and Other Delusions

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

It was Bugs Bunny who observed that he made the wrong turn in Albuquerque. It was a left one.    Some communications types who bask in platitudes leverage that anecdote as a message about the perils of making wrong decisions. However, what they miss in Bugs' story is that he went on to do just fine. The left turn was just a left turn. Maybe it shouldn't be regarded, in itself, as good or bad. Some schools of zen frame experience in that way: It simply is.

Great Public Speaking: Places

Great Public Speaking

Tuscaloosa, Alabama, wasn't far behind along with Kalamazoo, Michigan; Toledo, Ohio; Schenectady, New York; and one of my favorites, Albuquerque, New Mexico. Some places are simply funnier than others. Cleveland is funny. Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, is funny. I live just off Goodluck Road. That's funny. My computer consultant used to live on Easy Street in Temple Hills, Maryland. That's funny.
