The Bay Area chapter of Women in Communications Inc. gave what might be called a Swedish meatball citation to Hal Riney & Partners. At the group's first Leading Change awards luncheon--honoring firms that promote women or portray them positively--Riney got the sole Needing Change award. WICI sent the firm a cheesecake for its "Swedish bikini team" beer ad, which prompted a sexual harassment suit from the brewery's women employees. The Riney firm also was sued.

Regarding Jonathan Gold's column on telecommuting ("Working It Out," Three on the Town, May 1): A telecommuter's employer does know that the employee is working--more so than most employers. Rather than merely filling a chair or punching a time clock, a telecommuter has agreed with the boss to produce a certain amount of work. The quality of that work is then judged on its merit, not by how long it took to execute it. I telecommute because it means integrating work into all of life, rather than relegating it to an eight-hour block under fluorescent lights.
