Not for the Little Old Lady from Dubuque...

... was how THE NEW YORKER was once pitched, when it was launched way back when.

(I actually lived in Dubuque from 1976 to 1979. I think half the population of the town read THE NEW YORKER, just to prove they were more sophisticated than those New Yorkers thought).

Which is a long and roundabout way of saying, hey, there's a profile of me in the latest issue of THE NEW YORKER.

No April Fool here. Really truly.

How cool is that?
