??!! Tacoma’s Sexual Problem
posted by September 15 at 15:54 PMon
This summer, when Tall Ships (a touring fleet of lovely, and sometimes very old seafaring vessels) visited Tacoma, the ad campaign by the people in charge of talking up Tacoma was, “Tall Ships Is Coming! ARE YOU?”
Yesterday on the plane back from Boston I was flipping through the airline magazine when I saw an ad for a Tacoma hotel whose shtick is that its halls are lined with glass art. The ad has a picture of a glass bustier by Susan Taylor Glasglow (very much like this one) next to the text “The work may just inspire you. To get a room.”
It can’t be a good sign when a hotel is advertising sex.
And finally this morning a lovely and talented colleague of mine stopped by my desk speaking of a wedding he’d attended this weekend at this same Tacoma hotel.
He was holding the hotel’s version of a “Do Not Disturb” sign. This one says “TIED UP.”
Dan: Why are you not on your way to Tacoma right this second??
