Huzzah! I am an emerging blogger [2].

Dan Gross’ Moneybox column [2] in Slate gives big ups to the Big Picture [3]. Dan referred to our clear eyed view of what’s become a contentious issue: the so called “Self-Employed Work-at-Home Contractors [4].”

Thanks for the kind words, Dan!
(Sorry ’bout the wisecracks ’bout your alma mater!)

Dan also has an interesting column [5] in the Sunday Times, which I will point to despite the fact that I am no where to be found in it, thus, ending my streak of mentions in intelligent commentary at a grand total of one straight.
