UPDATE: Thanks for all the responses, guys. I’ve got a ton of good submissions to work with, and I appreciate them greatly. I don’t have a ton of room in the newspaper but I might end up publishing some of them right here in the blog.
I’ve mentioned this many a time, but my column deadline often sneaks up on me and scares the hell out of me on a Tuesday afternoon.
This week has been absolutely no different, to the point where my brain actually complained, “oh come ON, we wrote one two weeks ago! Do we have to do it again?”
Thursday happens to be a big day for people who are in the green card lottery for 2015, patiently waiting like I was a year ago to find out if they had a lucky ticket.
I’ve got a pretty good blog post about it in the pipeline, but I decided my column could be a good place to talk about the lottery process in general.So what I’m asking is this: If there are any readers out there who:
- Already have a lottery green card,
- Are waiting for their interview number to come up in DV2014,
- Are hoping their name will be pulled out of the hat on Thursday,
then I’d love to interview you for my column. If your comments make it in, I’d be more than happy to send you a newspaper clipping of the article for you to stick on your fridge.
So if you’re out there and you’d be interested in answering some questions for me via email over the next couple of days, then leave me a comment and I’ll get in touch.
Thanks in advance!
