The winner of last week’s prize, a copy of “Your Money: The Missing Manual,” is Cindy Brick. Or will be, if I hear back from her by Monday night.
Cindy: Check your e-mail! I’ve sent two notes and tried to send a third through your personal website (which bounced back).
If you don’t contact me by Monday evening, I will ask the random number generator to draw an alternate winner.
In fact, I’m instituting a new rule. I notify the winner on Monday night or Tuesday morning. If he or she does not respond by Friday, someone else will win.
I know you’re busy, folks. So am I. But I find the time to announce a contest, choose a winner and mail the prize each week. So if you enter the contest, take the additional step of checking your e-mail the next week. You snooze, you lose.
Oh, and if anyone knows Cindy Brick? Tell her not to be a stranger.
