yeah...the term "armed and dangerous" in a city like
DC or Newyork (both winners of the prestigous title,
"murder capitol of the world") can strike a chord that
most wouldn't find particularly pleasant.
I had a boss who ran an ad campaign in DC and New York
that said "Don't be caught 'dead' without a Cell
Phone" Needless to say, the bad taste of the ad
prevented us from making quota that month (or the
month after, or the month after....etc)
Lets' stick with INK Different (grammar be damned!)
