Village Voice- best of New York

Granted that we writers used to be a pair of initials after each entry but in the 2007 edition of the Village Voice's Best of New York issue, they've done away with byline entirely. Nowhere in the paper could I find any credits for the hundreds of entries there- not just me but also the many others who wrote there. I love writing for that issue (I collect items throughout the year for it) but I was kind of sad to see that we weren't getting any credit there in the paper.

As a way to correct, let me blow my horn for a moment and note the entries I did there. Maybe you can even enjoy some of these items.
