Sound Bite of the Week

Some people are better at others than creating soundbites.

Here's my favorite from this week's news stories, a snippet from a Wall Street Journal article about Steve and Barry's retail woes.

Referring to a practice where mall owners use anchor stores like Steve and Barry's as "loss leaders" to attract shoppers, the source said the retailer's terms were "absurd."

"Leasing to them would have been like bringing prositutes to a party to look popular," he says. "They might look good, but you're paying for it."
