Jack Hitt is a national treasure

Had him suckered into blogging for awhile, but he’s one of those old fashioned writers who still imagines that he should be compensated for his labor with the coin of filthy lucre. Silly man — anyone who’s the least bit familiar with the new virtual economy understands how foolishly outmoded this concept of “money-based compensation” is. Exposure, Jack! That’s the coin of the realm these days!

Anyway, this is just a head’s up — he’s got a piece on abortion rights in the New York Times Sunday Magazine that’s going to be well worth your time. Brief preview here. It involves the phrase “forensic vagina specialist” which, trust me, is in no way meant to amuse.
