Re: [toadvine] Benny

I don't think a Wolfe-Butler cabal is a definite yes either. It's just something I've heard from writers and teachers, that they're friends, and that sometimes Butler makes a 'recommendation' that Wolfe moves on. There's nepotism like this in many literary ventures; some illegal (prizes), some not (Best American Poetry, say). And while the verdict's not necessarily in, as you say, prior behavior (wives, and yes, forging documents to get into a good school) is enough to make one cautious.

Why so many Iowans or Arizonians got the Stegner? Who can say. It's a different issue. If a murderer kills three people, but knows a lot of other people he didn't, does that make those three transgressions puny or OK? No. We wouldn't say, Hey conspiracy, man, why isn't everyone dead?
