Call it filler if you want . . .

A couple of thoughts have been rolling around in my head.

This: I know it’s kind of old news, but still I think it’s great that Qorvis/+SmithGifford got the Virginia Lottery account, breaking the stranglehold that middle- and southern-Virginia agencies have had for years.

That: I wonder why the DC Convention & Tourism group picked the local office of an international public relations firm to drive its marketing effort. Then again, these were the guys who picked a Baltimore agency a few years ago. With MDB and White & Partners both in the mix pitching that account, I know they could have gone with a local creative firm that would have done a great job.

But nobody asked me.
