I am making the last laps of my Japanese vacation, trying to see all of Kyoto in three days (help!), but I am taking time out to point to the interview with Pajamas contributor Eric Umanksy on our transition site. I knew, among many of his distinctions, Eric wrote the Today’s Papers column for Slate, but I hadn’t realized he was once an editor of Brill’s Content. Of course, we don’t blame Eric for the rapid demise of that publication and hope he has more longevity with us. He also was once an intern with Mother Jones, a publication that profiled yours truly some time ago.
