Um, ‘kay?


How does the Associated Press even know I exist?

This is a question I asked myself last Friday when I got an email from one of their writers asking me if I would mind being interviewed for a community profile on Riverdale. Of course, I said “yes” but I still assumed it was a joke or some part of a mass hallucination.
Apparently, it wasn’t. Right before Shabbat set in, I had a 20-minute conversation with a reporter. Amazingly, I gave her some good quotes. Amazing because I was kind of passed out from a vicious bout of chronic pain during the entire thing.

The piece was also carried by “The Kansas City Star”, “The Albany Times Union”, “Netscape News”, “The Greeley Tribune” and my personal favorite because it’s in Spanish, “El Diario La Prensa”.
