Spotlight on Julie/Julia
Congratulations to Julie Powell for the lengthy and well-deserved profile in today’s New York Times. For the record, I should note that I said a lot of nice things about the Julie/Julia project to the Times writer, Amanda Hesser, that did not make it into her piece, which sensibly focused on Ms. Powell, Ms. Child and the food.

And that, contrary to what the Times article says, “Salon’s blog editor” is not now nor has it ever been my title. These blogs don’t have editors, as most of you know! That’s sort of the point…

Dat is dus waarom die hele server van Salon zowat plat ligt vandaag! Bah.
