From our Headless Ted in Brainless Ad desk
Amazingly, the Environmental League of Massachusetts Action Fund ran this ad in yesterday’s Boston Globe Capital (as in, $$$) section.
Seriously? A good head on his shoulders?
Not to get technical about it, but Ted Williams’ head is no longer on his shoulders.
It’s on ice.
Memo to ELM president George Bachrach: Your costly ad is not just headless.

Vin Scully, the legendary 85-year-old broadcaster who has called Los Angeles Dodgers games for lo, these last 64 years, has just re-upped for 2014, and the Boston Globe’s Dan Shaughnessy paid tribute to him in Sunday’s edition.
Vin Scully simply the best broadcaster of all time
Ted Williams, Jimi Hendrix, Bill Russell, Leonardo Da Vinci, Jim Brown, Winston Churchill, Bobby Orr, Yo-Yo Ma, Muhammad Ali . . .
And Vin Scully.
The best who ever lived.
On Friday, the Dodgers announced that Scully will be back as team broadcaster for his 65th year in 2014. A humbled Scully, now 85, gracefully participated in a press conference, telling the assembled media that he wished the Dodgers had simply released the news with a single line in the evening’s game notes.
The Sunday Boston Herald had nothing.
