Genius Grants

Today the MacArthur Foundation hands out its so-called Genius Grants to “talented individuals who have shown extraordinary originality and dedication in their creative pursuits and a marked capacity for self-direction.”

I’m waiting by the phone, confident.

The 5-year fellowship is unrestricted and the artists, scientists, researchers, and thinkers who are knighted with this prize are lucky bastards. Well, lucky bastards and geniuses.

So, here I am just waiting for the folks to call because I, too, am committed to building a more just, verdant, and peaceful world.
