    You may remember my 2002 post about Steven Heller's "Citizen Designer." Milton Glaser often says, "Good design is good citizenship." So, we asked Designers on Linkedin.

    I attempted to make this search, and checked every result... not good, and not honest ... how good is Google? Well it finds stuff, but it's kind of like searching for dog crap. Once you've found it, you're not sure you wanted to find it! LOL . . . #advertising #falseadvertising

How ironic is that. This ad from Google has absolutely NOTHING about Harrisonburg or the people there whatsoever! It's just plain false advertising!
