Did anyone else who submitted an ms to the T.S. Eliot prize get the following note in the mail recently?:

"Last month we sent you the attached notice to confirm that we received your T.S. Eliot manuscript. However, we recently learned that some of our mail sent at that time was burned in a tragic accident involving a postal truck. We apologize for this late notice."

Does this hit in a comically direct fashion anyone else's submitted-material anxiety buttons? Or cause an unpleasant Seinfeld flashback?

The notice itself, incidentally, is merely a notification that they received the ms safely. For which I am currently grateful; to both the mail-gods, and Truman State U. Press.
