Parents, head to the newsstand right now for one of the most vindicating cover stories ever to grace a weekly magazine. The June 30 Business Week confirms what we've long suspected: that advertisers are the Antichrist.For years, Madison Avenue has been trying to reach parents through their kids, pitching cereals and toys during Saturday morning cartoons in the hope that Junior can persuade Mom to buy the stuff, but all that's changed now. Mom is no longer necessary. Because today's kids have way more money than any previous generation, advertisers are bombarding them directly, starting from the day they're born.

At first glance, what Bryan Taylor and Vaughn Vigil are doing on Madison Avenue would seem to be madness. They've been taunted, threatened and had bottles thrown through their windows. Yet the two brothers have not given up their dream of renovating a former crack house at 1708 Madison Ave., driving off the drug dealers and making their street safe for the neighborhood's children. "I've realized you can't change the world. You can't change the city," said Vigil, 39, a Web page designer.

Earlier this month, senior State Department officials declared they would seek to deploy a new weapon in the arsenal used against terrorism: advertising. Since then, the government has been consulting Middle East experts and advertising executives about how - and whether - to use paid commercial spots on broadcasts popular with younger Arabs and Muslims disaffected with America. It would be propaganda for the consumer-driven age. The unofficial consensus is that this sell may prove tough, even for the masters of Madison Avenue.
