start spreading the news
Big score for Madison blogging: Ann has started her stint as a guest columnist for the New York Times. She may have her detractors among persons of similar political views to my own, but she gets nothing but wholehearted kudos from JFW. And not just because I am one of the few people who can say they read her first post on the first day she wrote it. And not just because, the more famous she gets, the more valuable the blurb that I am "the best sociologist in the world." And not just because I am going to try to cash in on her NYT fame by getting her to engineer a meeting between me and Sarah Vowell. Rather: I like Ann, am amazed at what she's developed online over the past three years, and am confident that she will do Madison proud with her turn on the Gray Lady stage.
