Dear Mars Folks---

A friend of mine in southern California sent me this
clipping from the Los Angeles Times... perhaps you
might want to write an essay-- perhaps they would
publish it... it is not clear what the prize is, other
than possible publication.  Hurry, deadline is
August 15th.

Ok, imagine this: The powers-that-be have decided
that it's time to colonize Mars and they're looking
for volunteers.  Interested?  Why? Why not? Let us
know, in 50 words or less, by writing to "Life on
Mars, c/o Life & Style, Los Angeles Times, Times
Mirror Square, Los Angeles, CA 90053 (fax: 213-237-4888).
No phone calls, please (but do include your daytime
and evening numbers).  Submissions must reach us
by Aug. 15 and, sorry, cannot be returned.


p.s. (from Ken E.)-- Make sure you include your
        full address as well as phone information.
        I have no idea if they will accept submissions
        from outside southern California, but why not
        give it a shot?
