Now Playing at “The Root.”

Joe Stack crashed his plane into a government building in Austin, Tx.

It was going to be posted here, but they made me an offer I couldn’t refuse.

My essay about Joseph Stack’s terrorist attack in Austin, Texas, White Man’s Anger, Black Man’s Death is now available at The Root.

It’s kind of a big deal for me to get something published in The Root.  They ran one of my articles in 2008 and I’ve been trying ever since to get a second one published.  It’s a tough nut to crack.

Persistence is it’s own reward.  It’s nice to be noticed, but for a freelance writer, where you’re noticed is just as important.

It will end up here eventually.  For the present I’m happy to have it play on a bigger stage.
