Published at Salon
So, it’s been an interesting day. I should have known when I woke up slightly more willingly than usual with Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance stuck in my head. Anyway, I cross publish my blog on OpenSalon, Twitter and Facebook because it’s automatic and low-effort. I’ve been writing lengthy Prop 8 things for a while, they’ve gotten limited attention, but apparently my long ramble late last night was appreciated by many people.
I checked my e-mail and there were a lot more than usual, comments on this piece but over at Salon. Turns out I’d made their front page. Furthermore, Broadsheet posted an edited for length version on their site. This makes me happy since when I read something interesting I send it immediately to either PZ Myers, Andrew Sullivan or Broadsheet.
So, yeah, I’m just stoked that my name is on the front page of Salon (twice!) and people think I’m vaguely interesting. Since I think the ideal life would be just writing opinion pieces and speaking at events, it’s like a tiny little slice of that. My mother has decided that this means I need to go to Law School. I kinda want to, but that’s madness. I credit the good fortune to putting Diego Forlan as my new Facebook profile picture.
