The N. Y. Times says self-publishing is OK

Even my dog reads the Times each morning, and he reads it upside-down.

Recently, The New York Times, the "Gray Lady," the hallowed arbiter of "all the news that's fit to print," "the newspaper of record" and my favorite paper since first grade, published a column by Virginia Heffernan. She discussed recent changes in the book business and wrote, "It’s hard to remember the stigma that once attached to self-publishing."

Apparently some of Virginia's co-workers have not yet gotten the news that the stigma has been removed, because it's extremely hard to get the Times to print a review of a self-pubbed book.
