Literati…Did you see funnyman Jon Stewart respondt o the a latest outrage, a shooting massacre that has come with such Uzi succession-frequency that all he could do was tell his audience: “I got nothing,” no sarcasm, no wit to drive home a point. Completely deflated by the events of the day. Do you recall that? Well, here I am having just read Nicole LeDonna’s finalist entry for our contest. Anything I could possibly say would only diminish from the power of the story. So no snarky words, or totally irrelevant graphic. Just her words.
Tiffany checked her in box, and I have checked mine: not so easy to do … here at the towers we are quaffing smoke from wildfires in Washington blowing this way. (the OTHER Washington also blows smoke, but beneath the surface!) I was missing California, and now that I can’t see the sun for all the smoke I feel right at home….oh…the boxes are empty…meaning ALL the stories have been posted!
