It Just Takes One (Update)

A blogger named Peterc nailed the "only one yes" rejection on the head. He left a comment that says: "Go to March 15 here: http://pubrants.blogspot.com/2007_03_01_archive.html and find enlightenment."

Follow this link and you will find the following:

"Dear Author: Thank you so much for sending the Nelson Literary Agency your query. We’d like to apologize in advance for the impersonal nature of this standard rejection letter. Rest assured that we do read every query letter carefully and, unfortunately, this project is not right for us. Because this business is so subjective and opinions vary widely, we recommend that you pursue other agents. After all, it just takes one "yes" to find the right match. Good luck with all your publishing endeavors.

Sincerely, Kristin Nelson, Sara Megibow"

I feel a little bad because Kristin Nelson, author of the blog Pub Rants, seems very nice and quite interested in writing a good rejection. Maybe she should just strike the last two lines?
