Why not try to get a (so cheesy) social-type movement going around this?

Paul Janisch

I find the term CALL immensely cheesy. I want to try and get some business support behind this so I've got a press release that my PR company is going to send out. I'll see how much interest I attract and then if it's not happening I'll try some viral thing. I know that this is not an original idea - Kevin Lester told me that the Brenthurst Foundation contemplated it a few years ago and it was rejected. But then things were very different - we now have a structure and a measurement mechanism that might be able to objectively measure it. I would appreciate any comments or suggestions on this, because I know very little about tax matters.

By the way - I loved your comments on Mick Taylor. He added a real edge to the Stones that they needed very badly. There are three vital John Mayall albums that anyone interested in British blues should listen to - Beano album with Clapton, Hard Road with Green and Crusade with Taylor.

And on the subject of Audience - I only have House on the Hill, but I do remember Chris Prior playing a variety of tracks back in those heady days. I downloaded a 2003-ish concert of them - Howard Werth still has that voice.




Paul, I am launching a new publication called The Good Company. We're trying a new thing: strip out titles like sustainability, empowerment etc, and ask, "what does it take for a company to be responsible in SA?" Makes for interesting reading and thinking because suddenly compliance seems to recede and you start thinking more widely.
We'll be carrying your press release about BEE tax breaks, if that's OK?
Please notify anyone who sees value in advertising is something like this: give me your fax number and I'll fax and advance copy.

Paul Janisch

I don't actually have a fax machine. Is it possible for you to email me a scanned copy. I'll certainly talk about it on this blog. And I would be honoured if you use my press release.
