I hope this Thanksgiving weekend finds you well, on good terms with friends and family, and unblemished by a Black Friday black eye delivered while shopping at WalMart.
Recently, an editor at an online site to which I regularly contribute put me in touch with a television host interested in interviewing me about a piece I’d written. I wrote to the television station, and when I didn’t hear back after three or four days, asked the editor whether I should shoot out a second inquiry. The editor replied immediately, telling me that I should again make contact with the station. Later that day, as a follow-up, the editor sent me this email: “Promote yourself. It’s the American way.”
Well, far be it from me to appear unpatriotic. Hence, this solicitation.
