I love this- the (annual?) MacArthur genius awards have been announced and 6 of 24 "geniuses"
are from NYC. Lord knows I know many awesome folks ion NYC(shout out to NextNY!)- it's such a great and vibrant community, and I think the brashness of the city rewards the scrappy go-getter in all of us.
Nominations and deliberations are secret, so you don't know if you are being considered or even if you have been nominated. I assume that this creates two distinct possibilities:
1. Maybe YOU are being considered right now.
2. I wonder if they can nominate a psychic/clairvoyant...
