WIN NOW was a series of photographs by acclaimed photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt taken during the 1940s for use in the War effort. Though the photographs were very popular with the G.I.s in various theaters of combat, the U.S. Government forbid their civilian use stateside. With the war over and the United States victorious, Eisenstaedt bought back his photos and held them back from public view for neatly fifty years. I first ran into Eisenstaedt in 1992, saving his life from dolphin attack in the Bermuda Triangle. So taken was he with my courage he willed the entire photo series to me shortly before his death in 1995.

Thanks for saying you liked these dumb things. It was a challenge to do something new every day and make it both topical and funny (dumb) at the same time. WE CAN SEE HOW YOU RISE TO THE CHALLENGE, SHE SAID. I always had fun in the Gamedays, unless I didn't. EDITORIAL: I liked it better when post counts were not divulged.
So long, suckers! VOTE FOR ME IN THE END OF THE YEAR AWARDS!! (WINK! I AM KIDDING - OR AM I??)
