And what a way to start.  Marina Hide leaves little to add in her dissection of the soon-to-be-notorious Owen Wilson/Rolex PR release.  I’ll do little other than note my continued astonishment that an actual human being sat down and wrote this.  They sat down at a desk, probably using some form of electronic writing device, wrote it, then sent it to someone else, who signed it off, several people had a big meeting about it, with coffee and biscuits and whatnot, and then they sent it out.  Actual people.
