PR lesson no. 214

Gustavo Dudamel, "the Dude," or "the next Leonard Bernstein," as he's known to Americans, was named music director of the L.A. Philharmonic. Why couldn't Anu Tali have had the job? He's Venezuelan. She's Estonian. (Americans have heard of neither.) He's got Chavez. She's got Ilves. (Americans have heard of neither.) He's got hair. She's got hair. (Americans like both.)
The Livonian Chronicle suggests Estonia begin work immediately to restore Tali's rightful place on the throne.
