The Bone Hunters - Accepted by Long Story Short

Another acceptance. This is kind of fun in that the editors of Long Story Short also try to sell you a bunch of services. They even send a fill-out-the-form press release for release to your local newspaper. Be sure to make a copy so you, too, can tell the good news when you have a story accepted (be sure to note that I'm telling this tongue-in-cheek).
