Arianna says: ‘Stick your neck out’
“To succeed, you’ve got to stick your neck out. This new book shows how to do it w/o getting your head chopped off.” – HuffPost‘s Editor-in-Chief Arianna Huffington in a Wednesday tweet regarding this book. As of late, Huffington has been getting hammered for a bizarre BlackBerry altercation aboard a United Airlines flight to D.C. that resulted in a whole lot of nothing but a blustery fellow flier who became unhinged over her alleged BlackBerrying. The above book is about how to conquer anything that stands in your way – and maybe that includes that uptight flier who still thinks tapping away on a BlackBerry could bring down an airplane.

“And now this brief word: I am suspending myself from Twitter temporarily, after @jamiedupree pointed out I tweeted “Gillerbrand”.” – CNN Radio reporter Lisa Desjardins in a Wednesday tweet referring to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.).
