If I were David Safier, the title of this post would be "Shameless Self Promotion" but my doing so would be "Shameless Plagiarism."
So, last night, I did what I suspect many egotistical writers do — googled the title of my op-ed piece to see where it was picked up and, lo and behold, found this:
Right wants us to forget that top 1% is getting lion's share of income, and blame bottom 1% instead. More lies. http://otherwords.org/trumped-war-welfare/ …
Apparently, the piece reached Mr. Reich's 154,933 followers, and of course Reich himself, and the readers of the 66 retweets.
And Truthout picked up the piece as well: http://truth-out.org/opinion/item/18888-a-trumped-up-war-on-welfare
Still better stick to my day job of practicing law, though, huh? Oh well.
