Hmmm. We’re the British coffee-trade magazine (www.coffee-house.org.uk) and we ran a preview story on this some months ago. Some days back, when I realized the actual publication was coming up, I tried to find an e-mail address for Playboy so I could put a few questions to them. The only e-mail address on their entire website is an ‘enquiries’ one, so I mailed to that. I told them who and where we are, and asked for an e-mail address for their press-relations or PR people. They mailed back giving a corporate snail-mail posting address. We replied and said, politely, that we’re in Britain, so could we have an e-mail address. They mailed back again and said ‘we gave you the postal address because it’s more convenient’. We replied again, politely, and pointed out that we’re in Britain, and are a magazine with deadlines, so could we please have an e-mail address? They e-mailed back and said ‘if you’ve got a deadline, you should have asked earlier’….!!!! Do you think working in that kind of environment has an adverse effect on the brain? -Ian B
