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. 

The blog that was featured was "My Top 10 Reasons For Hating Top Ten Lists." With so many Top Ten Lists floating around nowadays, I just couldn't help but come up with my own.
