Aww. Why so glum? Financial crisis got you down? Here. Read this very well written and funny essay which is mostly, but not exclusively, about rejection notes (a link to which I originally found on Ezra Klein’s blog).
If, for some odd reason, you refuse to read the whole thing, at least scroll down to the next to the last paragraph and read the rejection letter from the Chinese publication.
There. Now don’t you feel better already?
