The “Erikson Prize”, or whatever it’s called

I'm special!There’s nothing quite so awkward and painful as watching a sibling rivalry unfold in public.  It’s one of those sad aspects of gaining fame and becoming an internationally recognized thought leader:  Eventually, less successful members of your family tend to get jealous and start trying to bring you down, or one-up your accomplishments.

Which is why I must apologize to you, my readers, for your having to witness the sad spectacle of my brother Carl wangling some sort of journalism award out of a place I’ve never heard of,  only 1 week after my entry into competition for the PharmaVoice 100.   It`s an obvious ploy for attention, and I`m sorry you you had to see it.

The award is called the Erikson Prize for Excellence in Mental Health Media, and it`s given by some place called the Austen Riggs Center.  Rumor has it he`s hounded them night and day for this, so I guess all that hard work paid off.  Now they’ve finally relented, let’s hope he leaves them (and us) alone.

Self-promotion, Siblings
