If you like pizza, why not hang on to that take out menu?

Isn't that what you think to yourself, when you see that pizza, or Chinese food, or Taco joint's menu in your mailbox? It can't hurt, and it doesn't take up much room in your catch-all drawer.

I'll be emailing you individually with your grades and comments on your Kite Runner essay, and on some of them I've included a specific note encouraging you to enter the campus-wide essay contest.

The purpose of this post is to encourage all of you to enter it. Because it can't hurt. And, like I said in an earlier post, if the first prize winner comes from this class, the pizza's on me. (And you get to be a hero in the class!)

The contest rules are here. All your essays already meet the requirements. All you have to do is print them out on paper and submit them. Oh, wait, actually, you don't even have to do that. You can email it. But on behalf of the pizza lovers in the class, I'd encourage you to spend some time polishing your work before submitting it. But do submit it. What have you got to lose?

And honestly, I have a feeling that if you all do submit an entry, the laws of probability alone will mean the winner will come from this class.
