100 words: Meredith, 00s

Meredith was a publisher of a tourist guide in New York City. Hers was the 2nd or 3rd in a field of 2 or 3 publications, and she was always trashing the top publication of this genre, which, to be honest, was mroe than a tiny bit better than hers. Since she came from a sales background, she insisted that all the advertisers get editorial space in the magazine, meaning the magazine always had to be re-written after closing. And she always let her sales people close 3 weeks after the real close. As you can imagine, this caused messes all throughout the month. She was sneaky and underhanded too--she'd move ads that weren't hers and blame either production or art. I knew I was not going to like it there when, during the interview, she asked me if I read New York magazine. "No," I said, "but I read the New Yorker." She screeched. "I never met anyone who read the New Yorker before!"
