No time for losers

Multiple correct solutions to the Smithsonian puzzle have been entered. Mine is not among them.

Alas, I gave up too soon on picking apart the final acrostic this past weekend. I thought the final clue was needed, but it wasn't. Several people apparently deciphered it over the weekend, and I only arrived at it this morning, an hour before the last clue was to drop. Some of them solved the puzzle, but that hour wasn't enough to get me to the answer. Nor were the ensuing hours. I still haven't solved it.

This might be the answer for all I know, but I don't know why. Nevertheless, it still seems appropriate.

LONG I thought that knowledge alone would suffice me—O if I could but obtain knowledge!
