Norman Mailer died last year. And from the moment I snuck into the Red Room and saw my name on the same list as his, I have kept saying, “I’m not worthy … I’m not worthy.”
So there’s this contest you see. And the Grand Prize includes an airline ticket to San Francisco. I’m hoping we can generate enough page views for Norman Mailer so that he’ll win the contest and be flown in to meet his fellow RedRoomians. Wouldn’t that be something—even if for only a second so I could shake his hand and thank him for so many amazing words?
OK, I realize the contest rules specify the airfare will only be covered for flights in the United States. But I’m hoping the powers that be in the Red Room will bend a little to pick up the tab for Mr. Mailer’s flight from wherever he may be.
The contest ends soon. Vote for Mailer … before it’s too late.
