ABSTRACT
The article states that compassion fatigue can do strange things to one. So spare a thought for those good people at the BACC — a life spent sifting through advertising ordure and doling out tough love to an uninterested industry can't be good for you and, if an outburst at last week's British-Television Advertising Awards is anything to go by, could be causing serious mental strain. BTAA nights are never marked by temperance, for aberrance or fortitude, but even the unflappable Diary was a little shocked by the exuberance with which the BACC table greeted a commercial depicting the death of a schoolgirl under the wheels of a speeding car.
