JEALOUS! <insert green-face emoji here, I couldn’t find one> For my very first professionally published* article, I got all sorts of nice words from the editor on the nice job I’d done. Imagine my horror seeing my work in print, and finding hardly a paragraph (those that remained) untouched. They probably would have changes my last name, if my great-grandfather hadn’t already made the spelling phonetic to Americans. 😢

Oh well.

Anyway, Karen, good op-ed piece, well written (as usual) and timely. Looking forward to more!

*IOW, I got paid… a whopping $75, I think… maybe $50… it was a long time ago…
