Print Media Advertising Dollars....Who Is Still In The Game

Ok, this is getting harder (ahem) to ignore. The NYTimes online site is accepting advertising dollars from Russian wife services and hard pharma. As in products you take orally to obtain/retain pleasure. I think I am talking to guys here.
That means that the only source of reliable income are pervy things?
Well that's not totally true. There are still Tiffany ads. But it's the "free shipping" that scares me. Who springs for a swanky rock, lured by the promise of FedEx on the house. Makes no sense.
Who has money left? I know about houses, cars, travel being dying dreams. We finally have to be happy with what we have. Which is good.
But ad dollars? Where are they coming from?
No new phones coming out? DSL service I can't resist? Nothing.
Total retrench mode.
At least my Russian wife will make me feel better. After I take that pill.

I would suggest everyone to go with late ads in newspaper and magazines which would be of low cost. You can also get benefited if you choose an agency which has cost effective magazine advertising opportunities to smaller brands

Did you see anything about Russian husbands? When all else fails, maybe THAT would lift my spirits! Rosemary
