Receptionists that Rule —DeWese
At the very least, Karen Howerton and Linda Harkins are now officially members of the Mañana Man's Receptionists Hall of Fame and will soon be receiving all the fabulous stuff that accompanies this recognition. Some of you long-time readers will remember that I founded my Hall of Fame about 10 years ago, and have inducted four or five new members every year for several years. Then, after Attila the Editor wouldn't give me the money for the Hall of Fame building in Palm Beach, I temporarily suspended new inductees.
I'm going to temporarily suspend this column so you salespeople can get out there and sell something! PI
