Political Poll Wins "Best Fiction" Award: Tales From Normal, Mn.: FICTION
Shock and awe out of the New York Literary Society this week as the "Top Fiction" award was given to a recent political poll. Regular writers were totally outraged...and threatened to boycott the rest of the meetings...but leaders calmly replied that the "plot" was broadly construed and there was plenty of plotting and money changing hands if one could just imagine it, and yes the work was kinda comic, and fictional, and was just as bazarre as lots of other stuff submitted. And as far as the notion that these works were "scientific polls" they asserted that this has been a fiction for as long as our nation has existed. Stay tuned as I follow this story.
