Is celiac disease a

disability? Some say it is, and that restaurants charging more for gluten-free menu items are in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act. While some people are delighted to pay extra, one might think it’d be better to pass the cost of ADA compliance to all patrons for mere pennies, rather than charging those specifically with the ailment more money. For example, it’d be like charging people who use a wheelchair extra money to cover the cost of building and maintaining the wheelchair ramp. Read my latest in The Daily Beast.

My latest in Boston Magazine, on an upcoming marijuana expo and messed up pot policy in the Commonwealth.

And this happened …

I have left the Metro Times. You can read about my departure, reported by Crain’s, Motor City Muckraker, and Deadline Detroit.   It was an honor and a privilege to work with MT—especially the amazing editorial and production teams. We were ahead of the curve on issues Detroit is most hungry for considerate discussion on, including race, culture, and development.   I am so grateful for the opportunity to be here in Detroit and to serve the metro region—my heart lives here.   Thank you all for making my work at Metro Times possible, and an absolute delight.   Yours in spirit—Onward!

I am now Editor in Chief at Detroit Metro Times. Yeah. Read more about it here.
