What I Have in Common with Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad and Donald Trump
Just a humble Times Union blogger, I'm honored to see my blog post "Top Ten Lists" featured at the top of the Op-Ed section of today's newspaper. But is the Times Union trying to send me a message? Today I shared space alongside Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad; a month ago I was photo buddies with Donald Trump. Sure, there's a bright side here -- they're famous, and I'm not. Who am I to complain? Still, I find myself fantasizing that perhaps next time, they'll put me alongside Jennifer Lawrence (my daughter's heroine), or maybe even Brad Pitt.
