new column,

Here’s my column from today’s paper, on why all kids should be untan summertime geeks like I was. (Okay, that’s not the topic, but that’s the subtext. All writing is personal, you know.)
This is also my first mention of MTV’s Summer Beach House in print. May also be my first use of “picking bellybutton lint.”
You people don’t know how lucky you are. Over the last two days, I bought both and I had big plans for a guerrilla-democracy project that would involve getting someone on the California recall ballot (as I wrote about a couple of days ago). Halfway through site development last night, though, I realized I’d be too busy over the next two weeks to do it justice. Like I said, you don’t know how lucky you are.

One thought on “new column,”

  1. This column is right on target!
    We should force poor children to go to school all summer and let middle class and rich children have the summer off, because their parents care enough to teach them something during the summer.
    Why hasn’t anyone thought of this before?
