Just for curiosity, but of course after I had already written out one envelope for it, I went to check the Web Site of the magazine I was going to submit my story to today. I found that the site was 404 (not found). I then did a search for the magazine and editor and found it on a list of "Dead Magazines". Many of the magazines on the list I tried out ended up being dead as well. I eventually found one which was quite alive.

On a completely unrelated note, I found out that the 2/28 Phish show that was played at the Hampton Coliseum was one of the best shows ever. If I wasn't observant, I think I pretty much would have been there. But then again, this way I save a lot of money and heck - I can get the recordings from the band now if I so desire. They're offering every show in 48 hours or less for SHN and MP3 downloading. Wowsers.
