This week when you grab a java and scone at your hipster coffee joint, pick up a Chicago Reader: don't take the top one because obviously somebody read it and put it back on the pile. No -- a nice compressed copy, somewhere in the middle. Read the Straight Dope and Savage Love columns first, and then flip to the Best of Chicago 2008 insert. That's where I be, tied with Emily Schwartz in the Best Playwright category: Thanks Chicago Reader and Kerry Reid! To quote Emily Schwartz: "It will surely help us on our way to achieving a semi-obscure level of cultish fame."
