The adventures of an urbane bar-hopping transplant to New York.

I'm a storyteller in the New York area who is a regular on NPR's "This American Life" and at shows around the city. Moved to New York in 2006 and am working on selling a memoir of my years as a greeting card writer, and (as a personal, noncommercial obsession) a nonfiction book called "How to Love God Without Being a Jerk." My agent is Adam Chromy at Artists and Artisans. If you came here after hearing about my book on "This American Life" and Googling my name, the "How to Love God" book itself isn't in print yet, and may not even see print in its current form (I'm focusing on humorous memoir), but here's a sample I've posted in case you're curious anyway: Sample How To Love God Introduction, Pt. 1 of 3. Or just look through the archives for September 18, 2007.) The book you should be expecting is the greeting card book, about which more information is pending. Keep checking back!

Benefit of the Doubt, Meet Benefit of Hindsight...

Remember that last post? I woke up this morning and discovered that the qualms I had (or rather, the ones I was led to have) about that House Intelligence Report were, in fact, reasonable qualms to have---at least, according to a former House Intelligence Committee member, and (for that matter) according to Republican Rep. Hoekstra himself, who, as head of the committee, warns us that the report was rushed to completion (so we could respond to Aminijad?) and we can't trust all its conclusions. Laura Rozen posts Dr. Sick's qualms---as well as the qualms of one of the Democrats on the committee.

In particular, it looks like the missile info was, in fact, fudged. God! What is wrong with our people?
