In more old news, some wackos hate, Progressive's Flo. Put me more in the former, but, seriously, what's with that accompanying photo of her pitching? That's why I uploaded one from the Progressive site ... well, that doesn't do her justice, either. Waitaminuite, the original Philadelphia Inquirer article has much nicer pic. Washington Post, why do you hate Flo?
A fluff piece but, some history, some quips, an unexpected Geico connection, a Mad Men appearance that I spotted, and a quote from a guy who used to write some advertising review column. And probably enough to fuel both camps as they continue the debate.
Full disclosure: when I changed states, Progressive offered much better rates than Geico. And during my little fender bender, they were awfully helpful.
