i have been reading newsweek for the last 22 years. in my baby album is a picture of me at around age 3, reading newsweek while sitting on a little plastic potty. so you see i do not exaggerate. (although let's be honest, back then i mostly looked at the political cartoons.) anyway, for 20-some years i have been wanting to submit an article to newsweek, a "my turn" to be specific. and today? today i have accomplished something important. i have submitted my first letter to the editor. i have written 3 in my life, but never sent them, as they tend to come out to hot-sounding, and i can picture my mom saying "please watch your tone." what article has inspired this land-mark occurrence, you might ask? fareed zakaria's "what the world really wants" (and this follow-up) from the may 29th issue. what do you think..? about this or that or anything remotely related?
