Happy Festivus

"Festivus for the rest of us"

Newspaper ad for love?

Several readers called the San Antonio Express-News on Tuesday to comment on the unusual half-page advertisement that appeared on Tuesday’s Page 15A, in which someone identified only as “Raul” professed his unrequited love for “Megan”. If you want to catch up on this conversation starter or weigh in on Raul's romantic appeal to Megan, check out the ad and comment below.

You can click here to see the letter. The first thing that comes to mind is...Did he want her to see the letter? If he did why did he publish it in a newspaper?

If you are going to do this do it with some flair like this chap.
