Jones on Chris Snow in Esquire

    Good stuff.

    A sample:

    "I think it's only natural for parents to worry when their son takes such a huge risk, and after he's had a hug erun. I was set up pretty comfortably in what looked, to them, like the best job in the world. If I didn't do this, I would have wondered about it forever. I would have wondered what might have come."

    We all, of course, haven't had Chris Snow's crazy post-college life. But I think we've all run into people - many, many people - who tell you what a "dream job" we have. It can be suffocating.

    Sorry about that. Didn't realize Esquire Web-published full stories.

    It's like the New Yorker. They publish some but not all of their pieces online

    Oh, goodness. I was heading into this story thinking it was about Chris Rose.

    OK. I'm much more excited to read it now.

    That story was my formal introduction to one Mr. Jones.

    Absolutely fantastic story. I'm hooked.
