Hubby In The New York Times

My husband was quoted in the newspaper of record, the New York Times. In tomorrow's edition, in a short piece written by Peter Keepnews about legendary comic Steven Wright, is the following:
Brian McKim, who once opened for Mr. Wright and now offers commentary about the comedy scene on the Web site, praised him for rewriting the rules of the game.

"After him," Mr. McKim said, "a comic didn't need transitions, didn't need to address or even acknowledge the crowd, didn't necessarily have to appear to be enjoying himself. Wright made it O.K. to have no unifying theme other than the comic's mind, his thought processes."
He's so smart. I think I'll keep him.
