McSweeney's Column Contest’s Grand Prize
though we're just one column in (this, with New York Times writer Kim Severson), McSweeney's is ready to select the Grand Prize Winner in its annual Column Contest.
this election, by the way, appears to be a pure, unadulterated, one computer-one vote democracy, so I would very much appreciate it if you would take a day or two off from work (but really, no more than a day or two) to visit every public library within driving distance (one tank of gas limit), and while you're there log in to each available terminal and cast that computer's vote for The 49ers.
also, since you're already there and everything, please ask every person already logged in to a public library computer (you know, those folks that look like they've been sitting at the computer terminal for a couple hours already) if they could stop what they're doing to register their computer's vote for The 49ers (I'm sure they won't mind the interruption for something this important).
also, remember to vote at home and at work and at your in-laws' if you go over for dinner this week (the contest ends on Friday night).
I (and computers yearning for a tender touch) thank you immensely.
