The following was sent to me by a friend sitting on a search committee at a university in Iowa (to remain nameless). He wrote: You might enjoy this. A candidate for the Director of our Research Center faxed a colleague to request a letter of recommendation. It was accidentally faxed here instead. It read in part: "Iowa is too wet and droll. But it's a directorship so I should apply..." The fax is now part of his permanent application file.
