The USA Today ad is complete - in print November 21st, 2007

The full page ad commissioned by Lawrence Lepard appeared in USA Today
on Wednesday November 21st on page 17A.

The word is that USA Today was willing to do this ad because it was a grassroots effort.


The concept for the ad was originally developed by "max" here at
and tailored based on Lawrence's wishes from hundreds of comments from forum members
in an open source ad development methodology.

Lawrence passes on his thanks for everyone who provided input.

This is an amazing American story, please share it.

A PDF of the ad is available now and free for anyone to use.
If you use this ad with changes be sure to remove Lawrence's and Linda's name.
