Since the New York Times is the paper of record, I had hoped that a small measure of my success might come from getting my academic work mentioned in the pages of the Gray Lady.
Well, I made it! Maybe a feature in the higher education special section or a mention in the Science Times, right? No, not those. I am in the lead photo for a restaurant review in today's New Jersey section. Fortunately for the world at large, the photo is not available online. And since printed newspapers are going the way of the dinosaur, it is like being almost famous.
