Tina, I don't even need to look at the link. I consider WPP to be ambulance 
chasing, albeit with a higher level of skill involved. During my years in 
the Netherlands (the country where WPP is based) I religiously went to the 
exhibition every year, and every year I came out with the thought, "is life 
really this awful"? Yes, terrible things happen, but for most of us, most of 
the time, life is not terrible. In 2006 I was in Prague and saw the Czech 
Press Photo of the year exhibition. It was way superior to the WPP because 
it focused on everyday life and still made it spectacular. I have ignored 
WPP since then.
