COASTLINED

Quoted in the Wall Street Journal (and The Economist!)

I’m famous!

Nah, not really.  But, it turns out my impeccably written (and quite humorous) letter to the governor of Pennsylvania caught the attention of Jeff Zaslow, a columnist for the Wall Street Journal.

I had the pleasure of speaking with Mr. Zaslow over the weekend when he contacted me to see if I would mind providing some thoughts for a column he was working on about Governor Rendell’s comments last weekend and whether or not America really is a nation of wusses. I didn’t know anything about Jeff before I spoke with him, but I’ve since checked out his website and some of his previous columns, and I’m a fan! He’s an excellent writer.

If you want to check out his latest column (where he just happened to quote Baby, You Can(‘t) Drive My Car), you can see it here.

Update – January 9, 2011

I was also quoted in The Economist! I actually really like this piece, and I think my remarks were interpreted much better here. And, hey — the writer thought I was funny and unpretentious. That’s kind of awesome. Thanks to The Economist for the mention!

And I’m singin’ along to: Hurricane Drunk – Florence + The Machine
