Start your QJE clocks!  I just submitted my paper Kludged (rhymes with Qjed) to the Quarterly Journal of Economics.  The QJE has a reputation for speedy rejections.  For me this is a virtue.  Obviously I prefer not to be rejected, (although for some a QJE rejection is a well-earned badge of honor) but conditional on being rejected (always the most likely outcome), the sooner the better.

Addendum: Alas, the paper was rejected :(  It took about 3 1/2 months and I received 4 thoughtful referee reports.  All in all I would say I was treated fairly.
