Blogging not Writing

While Brett has been tearing up the scholarly world, I’ve been getting absorbed in baked goods.  Cupcakes, to be precise.  Upscale cupcakes are finally coming to Pittsburgh, a development that prompted me to invent something that I called “The Cupcake Class” as a satiric homage to Richard Florida’s “Creative Class.”  Where you find $3 cupcakes, you find growth-oriented economies. 

Alas, the lesser local newspaper read the blog and ran a quote; now I’m associated in print with this:  “Getting a cupcake shop can say a lot about your city.”

I’m sure that my Dean and colleagues are thrilled.
