I know Brinks runs misleading ads.  I've seen them and so have several others
here.  I also know that it's highly unlikely that you, I or anone else here
knows what percentage of revenue Brinks spends on advertising.  I do, however,
know that any major business selling to the general public is likely to spend
a significant part of their earnings on advertising.  That's business.

The name alone is never enough for the kind of penetration Brinks and ADT are
seeking.  (Note to "Doug": Not *that* type of menetration)
