« One hour with my father | Main | Oregon’s climatologist still a Pollyanna on global warming »

I feel your pain... I was just searching google to see if anyone else got an identical rejection letter from SUNY and your blog came up... My letter says:

"Thank you for considering SUNY Press as a possible publisher for your manuscript ... Your project seems to us to be an important one, but given our current program and commitments, we cannot express an interest in publishing it. Best wishes in your publishing venture and thanks again for your consideration of SUNY Press."

All the warmth and authenticity of an automated answering service. I would have almost preferred a red post card with an unhappy-face on the back.
