    Geneso,<br><br>Let’s be clear on a few facts, The LCT Magazine and Bobit Business Media does not take payment for articles to my knowledge but even if they did why would it matter to you? keeping in mind this is a industry publication not a public news paper or magazine that you can purchase on any street corner in America, next if you’re going to accuse someone of unethical tactics then I would recommend doing it in the proper format, as I think your approach to this is unprofessional. My last thing about your small minded and one liner comment is this, The editorial staff at the LCT has a right called "freedom of the press and if they should choose to exercise their right who are you to make a unfounded comment" such as the one above? Your short but upsetting remark is unfounded and out of place even for a blog. Before you speak get your facts correct if not your going to look like an uneducated fool. <br><br>Next time you might want to sign your full name and contact information if you have the balls… I know I do! <br><br>Have a great day, <br><br><br>Chris Hecker <br>CEO / President<br><br>Hecker Transportation, LLC.<br>dba Serenity Limousines &amp; Sedans <br>[email protected]<br>www. <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a><br><br>Office: 1-805-688-7746<br>
