I've decided to focus my best efforts on the lighter side of politcs from now on, and unfortunately, you may not read it here first.
That's because I've been submitting my various essays to other organizations for publication including the three entries below this one, and today…
To paraphrase John Kerry, I was accepted before I was rejected.
That is to say, I was notified that they liked what I sent them and were all set to publish it but…
They wanted assurance that I hadn't submitted the material elsewhere. I assured them that I hadn't, but I felt I had the ethical obligation to mention that I'd posted the items here earlier today.
And so here they'll stay.
But I was invited to send them future efforts, and so I will. Unfortunately, that could mean that you won't be seeing my best work here.
On the bright side, what I do end up posting will be plenty good enough.
Wow, did I say that? It's interesting how your attitude changes when you're on the verge of stardom!?
