Tag line of the month (June 2006): CRAVENDALE®
Milk so good, the cows want it back
On their Web site, you can view the latest CRAVENDALE® TV spot. I don’t want to give it away, so I’ll just say it’s funny...and memorable.
By the way, if you have a favorite tag line, please send it my way. I’ll feature it in July.

New Lego CEO -- Being nice isn't enough
Thursday, June 08, 2006
CEO bites dog.
Performance counts, as all of those CEOs who elect to earn a $1 in salary will tell you. But here comes a new twist. W. Alan McCollough, departing CEO of Circuit City, says he will forfeit long-term compensation worth about $6.9 million. Part of that includes a grant of 400,000 stock options (worth approximately $3.6 million). The stock options will be repurposed for “Chairman's Awards,” and given to those individuals who have the potential to make significant contributions to improving Circuit City’s performance.
Like the folks at BP say, “It’s a start.”
Speaking of performance, Mr. McCollough’s was dismal. In his five year tenure at Circuit City, shareholder return dropped 50.4 percent and S&P 500 Index Return slipped 15.6 percent.
