Co-Opting the Huckleberry

Co-Opting the Huckleberry

Here’s a line I used yesterday in opening a speech with 70 harried, type A executives: “You will have those cell phones and Huckleberries with you for the rest of the day and, probably, the rest of your lives. You only have me for the next 59 minutes. I’ve already been paid. I suggest you make me your priority and I assure you I’ll make it worthwhile.” Not one person left the room to make or take a call, and no thumbs were didling away on the PDAs. We need to take the offensive with this stupidity.
