Who Cares About "Who's Who"?
I received a letter saying I was accepted into Who's Who in America. I have been getting these forms, filling them out, and getting into these kinds of collections for some years now, but not Who's Who in America until now. (Drum roll...Cymbal crash...Laugh track.) But I have always puzzled over the significance of these collections, if they have any. Yes, they always want you to buy the favored volume (featuring you!), and they offer expensive plaques, etc. I never bite. Does anyone have any wisdom to offer on this? Should I even put it on my curriculum vitae?
