MacArthur Fellows 2008.

NOT a MacArthur Fellow.

Well the winners of this years MacArthur Genius awards have been announced...and once again I'm not on the list.

Before we get into a long discussion about the oblivious shortsightedness of the MacArthur Foundation, and their continuing failure to recognize one of the great minds of our age, namely me, I think we consider whose fault this is.

I blame you.

My sources tell me that not a single one of you nominated me this year. Now I know I got a few nominations last year (thanks Greg but threatening the committee was probably counter productive-it's not the Emmys) and the Nobel Prize I won was nice (who knew they awarded one for blogging?) but this is the big one...and you guys need to do better.

Oh sure, I could look within my self, trying to find a flaw or two which might explain this unbelievable snub...but who am I kidding, I have no flaws. No gentle readers, the fault is yours and you're going to have to find a way to make it up to me (nothing gay please-sorry Corey).
