Yes, it’s true, and can’t be denied. I’m now officially old enough to know better. But don’t worry: I refuse to act my age.
I am told that Matt Yglesias turns thirty today. Well, I never trusted him in the first place. But if this means I’m now supposed to be twice as wise as Matt, I don’t think I can do it. Sorry.
Update My colleague Andy Sabl asks in comments why I’m in my office rather than out doing something fun. As I was driving to work today, I figured out that if I could do anything I wanted for my birthday, I’d choose to … teach. I’ve made my share of mistakes, but having chosen a job of which I can sincerely say that makes up for most of them.
