calling all blogs

Did you ever want to quit working for The Man and open your own business? It may be easier than you think. My friend Mary O. from L.A. sent along the following message:
My sister's friend is doing the promotion for a writing contest in Greenville. The winner gets a restaurant!
Who better to win a writing contest than the members of the blogosphere? The entry fee is $100. A portion of the proceeds will go to the American Red Cross. If Chef Robert Bechard receives 1,000 entries by April 28, he will give Claude's Cafe to the author of the best essay. He built a website with the rules and the entry form at Claude's is in Greenville, South Carolina, about 4 hours from Knoxville.

It's actually closer to 3 hours, and it's a really nice drive. Plus, Greenville has turned into a nice city over the last 5-10 years.

Check and see how this "lottery" turned out. Seems he "didn't get enough" entries.
And what portion of the money that came in goes to the Red Cross?
Sounds a lot like a scam to me. Especially since the "winner" wasn't supposed to be announced until May 15.
