We Are Not Interested in Giving This Item Any Space

So we won’t give it much and, to be honest, we wouldn’t feel the need to talk about it all, except Quill & Quire’s Eric Emin Wood mentioned the item in a way that was so elegant and concise, the words themselves wanted sharing. Here goes:
One of the most tragic aspects of the publishing industry is recognizing the years of labour, research, networking, and luck that go into getting something onto shelves -- and then watching an idiot like this get handed a publishing contract.
Nice, right?

Wood’s Quillblog item is here and you can follow the links from there. (For the record, the idiot in question is former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. And there just isn’t anything else that could have made me look forward to Jon Bon Jovi’s book.)
