Re: “Call for submissions: The Reader's 15th annual Pure Fiction issue

Are there plans in place to respond to--or even acknowledge you received--submissions this year? Even a form rejection email would be nice.

Re: “The Practical Party

"If Pat Quinn loses and Bill Brady becomes governor, it will be because Quinn lost the race, not because Whitney facilitated Brady becoming governor. Some things are beyond our control."

That seems like the height of empty rationalization. If Quinn loses and Bill Brady becomes governor because people voted for Rich Whitney instead of Quinn, that's certainly within the control of who voted.

Vote for who you want, but don't deny the possible consequences. I think Brady would be a disaster, and that's why I taking Joravsky's take and voting for Quinn, even though I prefer Whitney.

Whitney's not going to win. He should, but he doesn't have a chance.
