It's A Tough World Out There

Take heart, rejected columnists!

And savor this, from the San Francisco Chronicle:

A few months ago, she [Condaleeza Rice] decided to write an opinion piece about Lebanon. She enlisted John Chambers, chief executive officer of Cisco Systems as a co-author, and they wrote about public/private partnerships and how they might be of use in rebuilding Lebanon after last summer's war. No one would publish it.
Think about that. Every one of the major newspapers approached refused to publish an essay by the secretary of state. . . . it was sent to the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times and perhaps other papers before the department finally tried a foreign publication, the Financial Times of London, which also turned it down.
If Condi can't get published by the big-time papers, who am I to whine about my rejection letters?
C'mon, everyone: group cackle!
