Today RK received another "newsletter" from that rag hali. Let's remember these "newsletters" neither bear 'news' nor are they 'letters'. It's but a euphemism to call them so, as they are only publicity and hype.
What is wrong with those people @hali, are they so lost in the miasma of their own self-importance to not even try to relate truth, and then do it on a timely basis.
The "newsletter" states: "On the occasion of the restoration of The Darius of the Universe carpet at the Museo Poldi Pezzoli, HALI's Editor Emeritus, Michael Franses, will present Classical Persian Carpets: a very personal tour. The lecture takes place tonight, 30 June 2014 at 6.30pm, at the Poldi Pezzoli Museum, Milan."
So what is it? a lecture? a tour?
We'd surmise probably both and we'll let them get away with the small bit of confusion the inability to string two sentences together causes.
But great Caesar's Ghost calling michael franses editor emeritus when in fact franses is the owner of that rag hali smacks of major disingenuity, and frankly it stinks.
Why do they not want to admit franses is now, once again, that rag hali's owner?
We have no clue, go ask still wet behind the ears editor ben aka jimmy olsen evans who most probably wrote this nonsense.
Also inviting people to attend and sending that invite on the day of the event is equally ass-backwards.
Yesshhh, any wonder RK's opinion of that rag hali is lower than an ant in a wheel rut?
