It's Official: I can now put "Cracked Contributing Writer" on my resumé

Regular visitors know that I write an occasional freelance piece for healthinsurance.org. The only problem is that both that site and mine have pretty narrow audiences, comprised mainly of those who are already actively seeking out analysis/opinion about health insurance matters, as opposed to the general public.

I also cross-post my diaries frequently over at Daily Kos, where the ACA Signups project originated, of course.

I'm therefore pleased to announce that this morning I've had my first publication on a non-healthcare or political-oriented website: Cracked.com.

I've attempted to fully explain how absurdly complex the U.S. healthcare system is (and thus why it's so difficult to make major changes to it) in a way which is easy for the average Joe to get (with a few poop jokes thrown in to keep within the Cracked tradition).

Anyway, I'm a long-time fan of Cracked, so I'm pretty geeked about this. Check it out!
