Smart Girls Who Do Stupid Things

For the past three days, besides writing this, which people seemed to like, I’ve been working on a radio piece for WBEZ. It aired on 848 this morning, but if you missed it, you can listen to/read it online. On some level, this is a story I’ve wanted to tell for a long time. Though I doubt this will be the last time I will write about September 11th, I do feel that after exhausting the topic this week, I’ll be putting it aside for now. Big thanks to those four individuals who took the time to talk to me about their feelings and experiences; there was endless tape we could have used, and cutting it down was difficult for me. As my boss Justin Kaufmann, who produced the piece, says, it comes down to “killing babies.” This sounds incredibly harsh, but is totally how it feels when people have said great, beautiful things and there’s just not enough time. Hopefully what’s in there is a good enough portrait of people and place.

This Is What I Did Last Night

A) Rock the front page of the Chicago Tribune.

For a better shot of me in all my glory, go to image 16 in this slideshow. I’m the happy person in the back. My presence, along with Odette’s, on the cover of this stupendous paper, prompted my boss to include me in this blog post.

B) Work on this video.

His words, not mine!

I found this photo to be an appropriate and excellent way to plug WBEZ, where I will be the devoted and beloved slave of the Online Content team for the next few months, thus explaining the potential spurt in Public Radio posts to be seen on this very site. I wouldn’t wear any of these outfits to the office, but I sure would like to.
