Snowden Question

So naturally the news of Snowden’s temporary Russian visa invites one big question.

Book deal?
Which naturally raises another question.

Does he really have a platform?

He can point to the 53 trillion downloads of Wikileaks as some indication.

Naturally, he’ll need a good agent to help craft the proposal and pinpoint significant, marketable changes. Perhaps, instead of doing a memoir (so last year), he should do a career guide. Also there is too much negativity in the story. He needs a more uplifting perspective. And maybe a dog or two.

And then there’s the all-important celebrity introduction. Since there’s a strong Internet background, maybe we can get a tech savvy movie star like Ashton Kutcher. If this is too frivolous a choice, we can responsible touch of public policy from that political Internet pioneer, Anthony Weiner.

There is a chance E.J.S. will have a book deal.
