I am one of the lede stories on the CNN.com site. No, that’s not me in the beard. The other story you see there is taken from an interview I did earlier today with a CNN reporter about my “Being Poor” piece. Here’s a direct link to it, as it will inevitably leave the front page at some point. Even so, it’s cool to have made it there, and not because I did something horrible.
As I just noted on Twitter, one of the things that amazes me (and depresses me just a little) is how the “Being Poor” piece continues to be relevant. It’s been seven years since I wrote the thing. It’s still one of the most visited pieces on the site.
Incidentally, if you wander down into the comments, you will perhaps appreciate even more the assiduousness with which I moderate my own comment threads.
