I have written about in on Facebook and Twitter and seemingly discussed this with everybody I know, but I can’t allow it to go unmentioned here… I am very proud of my wife Rebecca for her new position, announced on Friday.
There is so much more I could say, but instead I’ll keep my emotions in check in this public forum, bite my tongue and leave it at: I’m very proud of her.
I don’t think anyone who has worked with her going all the way back to the Michigan Daily would be surprised or anything other than happy.
And, of course, Rebecca is prominently featured in Big in China, though I would be the first to admit that my writing only begins to capture just how interesting, complex and positive a character she actually is.
So Mazel tov to my wife, and big thank yous to everyone who has been so supportive and enthusiastic in sending your best wishes.
