More From Bob Garfield

The New York Times ran a short Q&A yesterday with Bob Garfield ’77, who had announced on Monday that he’ll no longer be writing the column on the advertising world that he’s been doing for 25 years. In the Times piece he makes some interesting observations about what advertising has made possible in our society (“We’ve had to put up with Mr. Whipple, but we’ve gotten both The Beverly Hillbillies and the Pentagon Papers in return”), and he predicts that as the digital age grows, advertising will shrink—which, he seems to suggest, is not necessarily a good thing.
