Huzzah! I am an emerging blogger .
Dan Gross’ Moneybox column  in Slate gives big ups to the Big Picture . Dan referred to our clear eyed view of what’s become a contentious issue: the so called “Self-Employed Work-at-Home Contractors .”
Thanks for the kind words, Dan!
(Sorry ’bout the wisecracks ’bout your alma mater!)

Dan also has an interesting column  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.
