Being in the New York Times

I've heard people talk about the impact of being in a national publication. You know, stuff like fame, fortune, money and pretty ladies recognizing you in public places.

Well, I'm going to tell you something that I had never heard before. When you have a positive article in the New York Times, you get tons of phone calls and emails from companies that want to sell you a framed copy of the article. Including, the framing department of the New York Times.

What a weird business to be in. Open up the paper and asking yourself with each article, would I want a framed copy of that if it was about me? What if someone is found to be not guilty of a horrible crime? Surely that's good new, but would you want a framed copy of the headline? What about obituaries?

All I know is that if I want to spend $400, I can have a framed copy of the article in my hands by next week. I think I'll pass.
