    Reading about King Connors, I couldn’t help thinking back to BBD&O Advertising in 1967when dark-haired Jack Connors was a lowly account executive on one of my accounts, New England Telephone. I had been hired as a “Mad Woman” from New York, a fresh face , perhaps, who might brighten up their stodgy Boston advertising. Jack was a nice guy, I thought, but, still, a mere account executive. The brains in Advertising were always in the Creative Departments,. Little did I know that
    the smart guy coming around to collect my copy was the future king of Boston.
    Hey, nice going, Jack! Nice to know you had brains! And It’s even nicer to know that niceness can pay off.

    Man I just spoke with this dudes 87 year old dad. He said “My son is a multi million and he only sends me 100 dollars a month.” Then he said “I guess I didn’t do a good job in raising him.” I don’t know what his father did, but that’s pretty messed up for a so called King. lol
