Ahhhh... As I recall '74 was a good year. G. Gordon Liddy was found guilty of Watergate charges. Ian Ball failed in his attempt to kidnap Her Royal Highness Princess Anne and her husband Captain Mark Phillips. West Germany beat the Netherlands 2-1 for the FIFA World Cup.
Rejection 74: not as notable. Mr. Jason Koo, of Low Rent, used the royal "we" to say they'd read my submission with great interest, but decided to pass. He then said, "Sorry for the disappointing news." Well, Jason, I'll be honest: I'm not gonna cry about it. Thanks for assuming my emotions, though. Most people love that, and I'm one of 'em.
