Who you are ...

... and who you know are often decisive factors in life -- and in publishing, as Steve Clackson notes in Getting Published is easy if you are a Rich! I have long thought that someone should do an article, maybe even a book, about America's growing hereditary aristocracy -- the Fondas and Penns and Bridges in Hollywood, the Cheevers and Vonneguts among writers. All of the people mentioned are genuinely and deeply talented, but family connections certainly smoothed their way. (One might mention the Bushes and Gores and Dodds in politics, but they still have to run.)
