Tongue-in-cheek Q-and-A with the Jewish Journal. Excerpt:
JJ: How does it feel to write for The L.A. Times when they're so publicly crumbling?
JS: It's not a happy place. It's no Jewish Journal.
JJ: You seem happy.
JS: Well, I don't go in; I write from home. For me the L.A. Times is a better place than it was 10 years ago, 'cause they're on the Web. Ten or 15 years ago, no one outside of L.A. would see my stuff. It's still better to write for the L.A. Times than, like, whatever.com, like Huffington Post. You get the credit of being at a real institution.
JJ: What's Jewish about you?
JS: My name, my face.... I've gotten so much Jewier since moving to L.A. This is the Jewiest place compared to New York.
