rebrand the brand
i want to write an article called "rebrand the brand". brands used to be identifiers, like, i made this, and you trust me. good housekeeping seal of approval is also a brand. brand is trustworthy identity related to quality, not just an idea or a feeling. if brands were brands, we would need a lot fewer inspectors.

yesterday was the first day for the new gemeenteraad, saw a quick speech by nelly frijda.
today the guy from dienst wonen came to inspect this apartment. we're awaiting the outcome of his calculations.
