Thumbs Up from George
I just got word from the people at PlimptonProject.org that I have won the George Plimpton song writing contest (with “A Talk with George”). Huzzah! They are an organization dedicated to getting a statue of GP erected somewhere in Manhattan, a worthy goal if ever there was one. I can’t imagine there were a ton of entries, but I am honored just the same. Thanks to the project for choosing my song, and thanks to Jim Hanas for bringing it to my attention. Many of you right now are saying, “That song was about George Plimpton?” Wake up people!
