I know we talk a lot about CEOs on this program, we’ve got a whole segment about them, for that matter.

Shinola, by the way, will be on conversations from the Corner Office tomorrow.

Our friends at Quartz picked up on at item today along those lines, and not in a good way.

A survey by Edelman, the big public relations firm, showed that 53 percent of Americans can’t name a single company chief executive.

Which might be seen, I grant you, as Edelman looking to drum up PR business among company chief executives.

So there’s that.
