I’m All Over the Internet, But a Mention in an Honest-to-God Print Newspaper Gives Me Chills

It looks just like any other Washington Times page, doesn’t it?

But wait! Upon closer study you may notice that my byline is there. In an ad. In a major newspaper. That’s right. I’m being advertised right under a giant map of the United States. In fact, my little square is bigger than the map of the United States. I think that means something.

That’s not Jack, by the way.

Have you checked out my Autism Unexpected column in the Washington Times Communities? (There are some other really incredible writers there too.)

Also, it looks like it’s going to get warmer here over the weekend.

His “X Factor” is High

As if the Christmas tree lot wasn’t exciting enough, Jack also made the front page of the local paper.


I picked up the paper just before going to get my guys from the bus stop yesterday and kind of made an ass of myself showing it to everyone up there. But Jack! In the paper! Even if it’s just the back of his flat little head.

Jack’s media appearance was made even better by the arrival of an email from a friend of mine this morning, which read in part:

“…guessing you’re already aware of this but the current issue of [the local paper] prominently features a cover shot of the back of your middle child’s head as he is, i think, about to get eaten by a bear. or possibly just made aware of fire prevention techniques.”

Next up: Nightline. Seriously, Jack has gotten more press than the rest of Team Stimey put together.
