Singer’s Screed-o-Matic in Portfolio

0228062alba1.gif

Amy Wallace gets to lots of things at Portfolio that she never got to do at the LAT. Example:
The Screed-o-matic, featuring the prose stylings of Marty Singer, lawyer to the stars. Stars with issues and/or nude pix.

You get to chose the letter, the star, and the demand–cease and desist being a popular option.

Cleverly designed by Isabel Chang, this little feature ensures hours of on-line fun, and a quick education in legal posturing. You’re not wasting time–you’re researching.

And yes, this is the same Marty Singer who was one of the contributing writers to the ill-fated Brian Grazer Op-Ed section.
