PR Flacks, gotta love them. (Full disclosure -- I am a PR "flack" myself.)

Anyway, I stumbled upon a blog called SCREW YOU, RECESSION which is a blog pioneered by a Virgin Mobile PR team. I feel as though my Recession Blog idea has been hijacked!! I started mine in February, and theirs seems to have come along in March.

They have some interesting posts, and collect info from across the web (like me). Not much original content or thinking (like me).

MAJOR DIFFERENCES: They post a hell of a lot more than I do. This is easily understood because, cough, they get PAID to blog, while I am doing it out of the goodness of my heart for you, New York City. XOXO. Which brings me to the other major differences: This is Canadian-slanted. And they encourage you to break laws. (Awesome PR! How about I steal Virgin Mobile cell phone service? It's ok if someone else does it first! Virgin said so themselves!)

But more or less, I've been carbon copied. By Canadians. Le sigh.

So SCREW YOU, VIRGIN MOBILE! I will press on - now I have more drive! I WILL BE BETTER AND COOLER THAN YOU COPY CATS!

NEW YORK CITY RECESSION DIARY FOREVER!
