I had an op-ed in the April 17 paper edition of the New York Times (first published online April 16).
Here is the link to the article.
Many of you reading this blog helped me at some point with The State and the Stork, and/or with this op-ed, so let me take this opportunity to thank you. It takes a village to make the Times.
By the way, when we went to sleep in Germany the night before the piece came out, we had no idea that the op-ed was going to run. We awoke to frantic e-mail messages from the editor and my unfairly burdened publicist at the University of Chicago Press. So I did not see the final version before it went in, but all turned out well. Every night, J turns on our cherished iPad white noise app and checks e-mail one last time -- and J was on the e-mails, which is a long story ... -- but, amazingly, this one night we slept white noise-less for the first time since we moved to our churchbellatorium of a neighborhood.
