I wrote my last Text/Book column for the Standard.
It’s good to be moving on to newer things, and it’s especially great to have more time for the magazine. But I actually choked up a little when I sent this in to my editor (and friend) slash co-columnist, because I did this at least twice a month since, what, March?, and I’m gonna miss it.

I identified with Betty as a regular girl with modest funds for clothing, but always kept an abject love for Veronica and her mean girl ways. Sure she was always stabbing Betty in the back and treating Archie like her love slave… but, dammit, she looked fabulous doing it! She even pulled off menswear.
