Better than Publisher's Clearinghouse

Wanna win 100 large? SEIU is sponsoring a contest called Since Sliced Bread. All you have to do is go to their website, and, in 175 words or less, tell them your idea to "strengthen our economy and improve the day-to-day lives of working men and women and their families."

That's it. The deadline is Monday. A panel of judges will pick 21 finalists, then there will be 2 rounds of on-line public voting. Two runners up also get 50K! Most important, SEIU will work hard to make the winning ideas a reality. Hmm, I might try to think of something . . .
