taking it out of my cheek
For those of you who read yesterday's "famous" post, I hope you understand that I wasn't downplaying others' contributions to The Article. Tooting my own horn (and conversely making fun of myself) is a right I reserve on this here blog. But, let me take a moment to congratulate everyone who is making the CyanPDX a great example of the power of social media marketing (here's lookin' at you, Justin Kistner and Ian Johnson). Let me state the obvious: Great article, huh? Laura Oppenheimer is an impressive note-taker and listener. I'm so happy with how she represented what Jed and I had to say. In years past I've been interviewed by the media, and the resulting write-ups were disheartening because my words had been bent. I'll never forget when a paper in Anderson, South Carolina took my "female empowerment" statement and turned it into "Girl Power". Thinking about that still makes me involuntarily roll my eyes. Anyway, thanks, Laura. And thanks, Kiernan, for arranging the interview.
