Picher, Oklahoma, the Mick's old hometown, has been condemned. Boy, there's a story in there for sure...

Just received notice that a story that's been out on submission since last May (!) has been shortlisted with a publication I really dig. It's a fun story--kind of sad--about a fellow who begins to receive some strange charts and graphs in his mailbox.
It's based on a bizarre series of charts that I was getting in my mailbox last year. I kept those strange little boogers, they're somewhere in my office...man, those were fun, interesting days.
