Tensions between PR people and lawyers are legion. There was no PR person in this situation down in Knoxville, Tenn., but there should have been. This News Sentinel account of a lawyer putting himself on display, supposedly on a client's behalf, is not for the fainthearted. "Oh, he was full of clichés," writer Pam Strickland reports, "but I won't bother with the rest of those except for his demeaning insistence on calling a female news reporter 'sweetheart.' Really. He apologized, but then he took it back 'because you really are.'" Anybody want to advise the Tennessee Bar Association?
