Pride and Prejudice

Some dude named David Lassman changed the titles and character names of a few Jane Austen novels and sent a bunch of chapters to 18 British agents and publishers, who--guess what--rejected them. Check it out at cementedminds (as reported today in the Daily Mail). Wouldn't those be great letters to post?

yes, because it's the 21st century, not the 18th. i'm pretty sure if some fashion designer today copied some patterns from two-hundred years ago and sewed up some samples and tried to sell her line to macy's, she would be rejected, too. it's not rocket science, people. it's common sense.
