Murphy's Law

Tom Murphy

Our next big media star

Comical Ali or  Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf as he is named is alive and well.  I am sure a sigh of relief will sweep over the PR community as our highest profile practitioner is back in circulation.

According to an interview with him he is planning on writing a book on the fall of the Ba-athist regime, however, if he has a sense of humour, and an eye for the commercial world, I’m sure it’s only a matter of time until the: “Essential Handbook for Communicating in Difficult Times” hits the bookshelves.

Of course, he must be mortified that he was simply questioned and released.  It’s just so typical, they never give PR people the respect we deserve.

Postscript 1: Wow!! What has happened to his hair? I think some male hair color marketer has an opportunity there.

Postscript 2: The New York Post looks at the commerical opportunities for him.
