    The interviewer from ABC Nightline referred me to your fellowship — I can't say it was my first time hearing about the opportunity, I tried to apply last year but was thwarted.

    Anyways — hopefully I found the perfect forum to catch your attention, a@imshmacked.com.

  3. Sorry Arya. This is not an award for thieves and criminals.

  4. I think this is a golden opportunity for the serious entrepreneurs.
