For all of you who know Nancy Consecu, Senior Editor at Little, Brown & Co.  She is leaving Little, Brown for a position of Executive Editor at Dutton.  She starts on July 6th at Dutton and will report directly to Lauri Hornik.  Congratulations, Nancy!

Another Snapple Bottle Fun Fact:  Did you know that President Taft weighed 300 lbs?  He was so big he got suck in the bathtub at the White House.  Image what the press would do to him with if he were President today.  I wonder if we would even vote for a person who was 300 lbs., today.

Talk tomorrow,
