Ask me stuff
The launch of a new experiment
People ask me sometimes if I worry about getting burned out writing this newsletter and the answer is basically — no. I like to write a lot, and I think if I wrote less I would tweet more which is worse.
But I do worry about getting boring or repetitive, so I wanted to try an idea for making sure things always stay a bit off balance. In the comments to this article ask me some questions — or go under a question someone else already asked and say you agree it’s a good question — and then later this week I’ll do a response column. I always enjoyed reading Bill Simmons’ mailbag columns back when he wrote for ESPN Page 2, and I hope for this to ideally work in somewhat the same spirit. You can of course ask me about politics and current affairs but also movies, alternate history scenarios, books, European tex-mex restaurants, internet feuds, which countries have adequate supplies of ice cubes, The Problem With Young People Today, or anything else you might be interested in.
