Not a column. Occasional contributions to their soon-to-be-unveiled op-ed page. I enjoy reading NYP a lot, right-wing blowhards and all; I don't agree with Katha on that, but they've never called me a bubbly faghag (or kvelling Dutch boy) either. It's about 500 times more interesting than the Village Voice is these days; I'd rather be pissed off by something I read than bored, and the Voice is profoundly boring.
