I was *nominated* for a Pulitzer prize, once.  Had nothing to do with 
photography, of course, and I didn't get so much as a pair of shoelaces for 
it.  As Fitzgerald said somewhere, I think, "there aren't any second acts 
in American lives."  I suppose that this is because second place (let alone 
50th) just don't matter much in our world.

Apologies to non-American luggers.
