So I do all the Lincoln and Ford ordering here. The son(GM) and the dad have two very different views on color choice. I answer most directly to the son but understand the Dad's name is on my check as well. In the past 24 hours both told me to ignore the other. The dads warning seemed more ominous but FML

So after 6 1/2 years with no change in rates I get for hosting trivia nights, Stump thinks I'm worth less, and the owner of White Horse/Harry's thinks I'm worth 16-20% less if I disaffiliate from Stump. Tomorrow is the 11th hour to negotiate. Let's see what transpires.

Oh yeah, I signed the deal with Stump. No sense voluntarily not working. Besides, my fans deserve better. See you at White Horse at 8!

Thanks, Lug.

Yeah, I took the Stump deal, but I'm not so far impressed with what I see with plans for me. When Geeks comes calling later this year, I may well switch teams.

I don't love everything about their game, but their audiences do, and that's what really matters.

I just think the way they do business is much better than we currently do in so many ways. Case in point:

Guy who runs Geeks: "Our writers have an online forum and a database where they communicate and share ideas."

Me to my boss at Stump: "I don't like some things about our questions. What are the names and e-mails of the other contributing writers?"

Stump boss: "That's not for you to know."

It's amazing. It's the only creative enterprise I've ever heard of where people do not share ideas. So byzantine.
