SELF-PROMOTION: Like most journalists, I'm actually a frustrated novelist. I occasionally produce short stories, and one of them -- titled "Aesop and the Tree" -- has just been published in the North Carolina magazine The Blotter. If you live in the right part of Tarheel country, you can pick up a copy at a newsstand; the rest of you will have to read it online.
