Longtime readers should remember that last week I posted congratulations to Gawker for being named Entertainment Weekly's "It blog."
I also tried to launch an e-mail campaign to get EW to recognize this blog, which some have referred to as "The Greatest Blog in the World."
It seems that the magazine was deluged with demands to include me in the laurel-granting fun. An EW staffer (identifying herself only as "Gleesa Twartzbaumer") leaked the following scanned image to me, which she revealed was cut from the magazine moments before publication. She also mentioned that the puzzling inclusion of Salman Rushdie as "It Fatwa Target" was added from their archives to fill the layout hole created by my last-minute excision.
Oh well, better luck next year.
