...it's for my work as the president of my teacher's union.
One of my friends and colleagues said I should have put in a plug for the novel. I wish I could have figured out a way to do that. Maybe something like,
"Gorman, a novelist with a new book coming out in November, said that he is as hopeful for the success of the next bargaining session as he is for the sales of his book. However, in both cases, he is trying to maintain realistic expectations."
Yeah, that wouldn't have been at all weird.
I have a sinking suspicion that's not Mr. Newton's fault.
