Congratulations, today, to two members of the NN.C extended family — and that is what we are, isn’t it? — who are getting their due, or at least a portion of it.
Lance Mannion, who apparently never gets tired, got a link from James Wolcott. “It was to the ‘Law & Order’ post, right?” I asked; no one has a more encyclopedic knowledge of L&O trivia AND subtext than Lance. No, it wasn’t, it was to this post, but do yourself some good and just add Lance’s page to your bookmarks and check him every day or so. He rarely disappoints.
Even more impressive was young Zachary, who made it into The New Yorker, yes I said The New Freakin’ Yorker this week, and not just in some lame-o Talk of the Town piece, either. We remember Zach when he was just the only other Fort Wayne blogger to come to a blog meetup at Chili’s several summers ago, and here he is, living in a $10,000 a month NYC apartment (yes, with several roommates, but still). We here at NN.C couldn’t be more proud to be on his blogroll. And we hope we can get on the guest list of one of his future parties.
