>My piece about why I kept my last name when I got married will be running in tomorrow (TUESDAY, OCT. 24) Metro New York. If you are lucky enough to live in the City, pick up a copy on your way to work.

It's OK if you chuckle cruelly at my picture. (I had to take a new one after all that because the resolution was not high enough.) I hope you like the writing, though.

If you live outside of NYC, or missed the paper guy at your subway station this morning, Metro New York posts the My View column online. Read my name opus magnum, I will never be a Mrs. Husband, at your leisure. Online readers are deprived of my little floating head next to the title, however.
