Seth Godin wonders why marketers are considered to be more similar to lawyers than statesmen. Can't someone market products effectively while maintaining the honesty of a statesman rather than blind advocacy?

In real estate news, MinnPost, together with 612 Authentic, take a tour of homes for sale for $25,000 in Minneapolis. Century 21 agent, Constance Nompelis acts as tour guide.
