Cate's e-mail totally made me bounce around my room quite literally as i am (figuratively) 5.
Clearly this whole "write something when you're not really focused and it's kinda last minute and you definitely think it's sub-par; then hand it in" works well for me.
good to see that you're back and writing for op/ed. that's fabulous!
i'm glad you wrote on this piece. it seems like you are very passionate about queer/lbta politics, which is great, because we don't have anyone in op/ed who's specialized in that area.
well, if i have feedback, i'll give it to you soon. otherwise i'm printing as-is.
