I have to tell you this because I’m so excited, I can’t breathe. I’m in the New York Times. Please see the link, and then imagine my mom seeing the link on Mother’s Day, and keep in mind, we are a Jewish family. We were in Brigantine, New Jersey, without an Internet signal, and my mom got a voicemail message from her friend Marion who was kvelling about the piece online. And we ran to WaWa to get a copy of the paper because, for some reason, I wouldn’t believe it was “real” until I saw the print edition. (Once a print journalist, always a print journalist.) It’s a really great article by writer Gabrielle Glaser.
Shea Roggio is superb at taking amazingly flattering picitures of me, apparently, and is also an incredible photographer in general. See his work here. Pictured is an alternate shot Shea took that I really love. I would call it, “Me and My Mac.”
And Gabrielle did such an incredible job with a tough subject — that of “mad pride.” I won’t say too much because the piece is far more eloquent than I am, but please do read it.
Also, Jake Tapper gave me and my fellow classmates a sweet shout-out today on his blog, Political Punch. See it here.
And that’s the last self-promotional post I’ll do, I promise. It makes me uncomfortable, but how often am I going to hit the pages of the Times? Like, never. For today, though, we rejoice.
