Terrible words

"Super Horse" at the Saratogian.
I was in Saratoga on Tuesday to share with some colleagues some ~insights~ and ~strategies~ for newsrooms when it comes to social media, specifically Facebook and Twitter.
I said "cats" a lot, as I'm wont to do. I also made terrible faces and said terrible things like "brands" and "millennials," which I should have replaced with "cats," obviously, because those words are terrible.
It was great.

You too, hipster.
