Once again, the Boston Herald (the 53rd biggest newspaper in the United States!) has done itself proud by putting my words on the editorial pages.
READ THEM HERE
A note concerning the text (which will not make any sense until you've read it, so go do so): My fee would be commensurate* with how far I have to travel. For instance, I live just down the street from Harvard, so I'd only charge them $100.** If Beijing Jiaotong University wants me, it will cost them 600 million yuan.***
Hey, here's some footnotes!
*That's the sort of word you wouldn't expect from someone who never went to college, but I used it anyway. Just wanted to squelch the trepidations of anyone considering hiring me (which you don't know what for, unless you've read the piece, so you should do so, if you haven't. Excelsior!)
** If they throw in an honorary doctorate.
*** Yes, there is such a place. And if they'll give me a Peking duck for lunch (if they still call it a Peking duck over there) I won't make fun of the school's initials.
Soon, with more better stuff.****
