Having had a letter published in the New York Times and having been interviewed by Public Radio, I've now hit the trifecta of New York liberalism.
I am quoted in this week's Village Voice in a column by Rachel Kramer Bussel:
While my mom has probably blocked the conversation out of her memory, I vividly remember calmly confronting her about where my then-girlfried would sleep during one college break visit. We talked in the side hall of our house, while my mom moved a load of laundry from the washer to the dryer, the activity giving her a distraction from the uncomfortable subject at hand. It's just one of those moments I will always remember; even though my parents always gave me a fair amount of independence, the conversation sticks out in my mind as a marker during my transition from kid to adult. (A transition that will probably never be complete.)Posted by Doug at December 19, 2005 12:01 AM
