death of a salesman (not)...

at 6:53 a.m. i'm in the office putting together materials for a training that has been scheduled for a month ... if it weren't for deadlines i believe nothing might ever get done~! :-)

tcask has big plans for student chapters in the state but currently we have one @ mtsu in murfreesboro ... that's my destination ... i'm late leaving the office ... i should be there at 10 and i'm just getting off the interstate at 10 so i'm still 15 minutes out ... i call the chapter's vice-president's cell phone and leave a message, (in a haggard voice) "i'm caught in this blizzard of a snow storm and crawling along in traffic at 20 mph ... i'll be there as soon as mother nature permits..."

i was there at 10:15 ... the training is fairly simple - it's just showing how easy it is to go into a business and ask them to sign a moratorium resolution (a petition for businesses and such to ask for a time-out on executions and a thorough study of the state's death penalty system)...

so alex and i had tweaked a pitch script (thank you buttercup!) to make the point that you wanna stay on point and every quickly all five people there "get it" - it's like, with one exoneration for every eight executions, if that were cars from the saturn auto plant in spring hill having ions recalled at a 12% rate you would want to investigate and find out why this is happening - it's bad business ...

as for the materials it was a simple series of flip pages to complement the very brief conversation and ask...

after the session we went to the city cafe for lunch and they put together a specific list of some 50 businesses as targets and assigned them out...

my work done, i drove back to nashville in the driving rain...
