Another Very Nice Rejection

Hey friends-- I'm pleased to announce that I've received a second very nice rejection note (see below). It's not quite as nice as "rewrite it and send it back" but it is very close to that... "send us some more." I told my good friend the Omnivore that things have really started looking up since I started doing more than one draft of my work.

Hi Matt:

We kicked your fine article around the Editorial Board meeting a few times and -- reluctantly -- decided to pass. Not because of any lack of merit of the piece, but we've covered a lot of that ground in recent issues.The good news is that we all like the way you think/write and would welcome submissions of this caliber any time! Thanks again for thinking of us.
