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!
