Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

Once again, the MacArthur Foundation has announced its annual two dozen Fellows.

Once again, I’m not on the list.

Not that I’ve been trying. Still, my lazy-man approach should have netted me one of those phat MacA $500,000 “genius award” jackpots by now, based on the following:

1. My proposal, two years ago, to have John D. and Catherine T. anoint me as the first-ever MacArthur Foundation Blogging Fellow. (Obviously, the hoped-for groundswell of support for that never materialized.)

2. My geographic edge, as one-fourth of 2007’s Fellows happen to be based in New York City. I’m right here in the middle of the action! I’ll gladly accept the genius-by-proximity mojo.

But so far, no good. I’ll have to redouble my efforts for 2008. Maybe even take the drastic step of blogging about something meaningful…
