I knew this day would come. Actually, since I profiled blogger Luke Ford for the cover of The Jewish Journal (I was speaking with other Jewish journalists yesterday, and they were appalled by this reality), Luke has been up and down on how he’s felt about the story. But we talked Friday and he said he thought it was fair and that his inner-Amalek “loved it.”
Today he wrote on his blog, that I was, in fact, a major disappointment:
For a decade, Iâve fantasized about appearing on the cover of the Jewish Journal.
Iâve spent more time thinking about what Iâll say in that ultimate interview than Iâve spent trying to pick up chicks.
(I have a far richer inner life than social life.)
I always thought this article would come at the hands of Amy Klein. I pictured us over lunch and how I would whip out my tape recorder when she started the on-the-record part of our conversation and all the brilliant justifications Iâd give her for my abominable behavior. (Some people use their intelligence to make the world a better place. I use mine to rationalize my sins.)
But then my time came at the hands of 25-year-old Christian Brad A. Greenberg. Bradâs a good reporter but heâs no Amy Klein. And when he started asking me questions, well, I just answered them. The whole thing didnât run anything like my fantasies. We didnât even hook up afterwards because that wouldâve been against the Torah.
