    I noticed in my backend stats a referring link to this post from The Wall Street Journal. Not exactly the usual company I keep, but hey, bring down the social barriers! To my surprise and delight, the link led to an article by Nat Hentoff. I thought he was a Village Voice, not WSJ, kind of guy. Working writers have to make a living however they can. WSJ appears to use a refreshable Sphere search widget to link out to related blog content. I’m pleased and proud to be connected with Nat Hentoff on jazz, however it happens.
