Thank you for the excellent article (Recipe for growth, page 20) in your November issue of Small Business News. You did a great job capturing the spirit of our company and defining our growth strategy. I have received many comments from friends on the article.

Whose Rock Hall is it anyway?
I hope that Chuck Gentile wins his plight. About a year ago, I was cleaning crawl spaces in my attic and came upon extremely old pictures of Paul and Linda McCartney. There were several B&W pictures of them and other people visiting and recording in some African country. I contacted the (Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum) and offered to donate them on three occasions and did not receive even a courtesy call back. Which turns me off. Im not quite certain that they realize its us thats going to make them successful, and they are not a step above us. They seem extremely arrogant. I still have the pictures and maybe now Ill put a price tag on them.

I just finished reading your article, "Making sense of a Rebel Yell," and it hit home to a problem I had with the corporate Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
We had a similar problem with the Hall. Their basic thinking is Dont knock the Rock. They dont care about anything but themselves. We had what I though was a great idea to help promote the Hall. This was before it was opened. The hall gave us a cease and desist (order).
