                   BLOGS
• In an attempt to counteract any negative
  publicity, RxTRA’s public relations director
  decided to put together a blog singing the
  praises of Adieu. He was in a hurry to get this
  done, so he just cut and pasted an article from
  Pharmaceutical News to the blog. He also
  downloaded Lenny Kravitz’s, “Lady”, to play in
  the background while the blog was being
  viewed. He has not received authorization from
  either owner.
