Wise;was an account executive from the Cincinnati headquarters;of Quinn & Inder, the second-largest consumer products;firm in the United States. At first, Christine thought that;she'd been invited to discuss their plans to extend their;reach into the Hispanic youth market. But when she asked;Bart how she might best prepare for the meeting, he j ust;smiled and said, "Just wear that little black dress you wore;at the firm's holiday party and leave the talking to Allen;and me.

In one e-mail, Boling mentioned that a threeyear agreement with Lilly "is sitting on the Procurement;Managers [sic] desk now to be signed." Should GeorgiaPacific withdraw from BAM?
