I tried to think of a way to make this post have something to do with the media or with education–maybe something about how the media make a celebrity a culture or somesuch. But really, I just thought it was cool that I saw Alex Rodriguez at 61st and Madison today. I regret not stopping to ask for an autograph, but he was with a woman, and obviously on his way to dinner. It seemed gauche.

It does make me at least momentarily regret also not taking my job with the Yankees. Alas, I guess I’ll just stick with academia.

I saw Keanu Reeves last week, actually. I don’t regret not getting his autograph nearly as much.


  1. Well that was just about the briefest return to blogging *ever*…
