FOR NY TIMES READERS ONLY!
Re: my op-ed in today’s NYT (8/17/13)
Welcome, New York Times readers.
I know you’re busy. You have other things to do. Like working out . . .
Guys, give me a New York minute!
Please enter your email in the space on the LEFT and click “submit.” (TMI: Scroll down on the LEFT to a pink button that says “Yiddishe Cup Home.” You’ll see “join the mailing list” there.) You’ll get one email a week, every Wednesday morning. Just one email a week. And I won’t sell your email address to anybody.
I’ve written a lot about real estate. Check out the stories here.
I’ve written a lot about music too.
Byliner chose one of my essays as a top non-fiction magazine article of 2012.
I’ve been in the Times op-ed section four times lately. Who else can say that? (Friedman, Brooks, Dowd. They don’t count! They’re not freelancers.)

My op-ed today is a lot about family, so you might be interested — you still reading this? — to learn more:
My son Jack’s band, Vulfpeck, will be in New York on October 4.
My son the lawyer, Ted, is a two-time Jeopardy! champion. The Times left that out! Ted is a top-notch lawyer. Ted, sue somebody for me.
Yes, I’m a proud dad.
My daughter, Lucy, and her husband,Tim, didn’t make the op-ed. (Lucy said, “Thank goodness.”) Here’s an equal opportunity addendum: Tim is a first-grade teacher, and Lucy is a corporate event planner in Chicago. Check out Lucy’s event at the White House.
Shabbat shalom ( for those who celebrate).
See you here every Wednesday, or else!
P.S. I bought the paper — the Times. The whole freaking Times. That’s why I’m in it so much. Bezos and me, we’re partying right now.
